B.F.A., Media Arts, 2014

The Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford taught me how to think outside the usual form of thinking and to push boundaries that I otherwise might not have seen. It also taught me to use the skills of my field in ways that I didn’t even know I could. Because of this, I am currently employed as a video technician at the Mohegan Sun Casino, where I’ve worked on large shows such as Black Sabbath and Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights Tour. I am currently looking forward to putting my skills to work for Mohegan’s 20th Anniversary Celebration. I was previously employed at the Ivoryton Playhouse in a position that I acquired thanks to a friendship that I made while at the University of Hartford. At Ivoryton, I was a projection designer for the premiere of Mike Reiss’ play Comedy Is Hard and for the U.S. professional premiere of Calendar Girls, adapted by Tim Firth. I also worked as the head of the video/projection department for the Contemporary American Theater Festival's 25th season. The University of Hartford helped me to achieve the knowledge to face problems from a different direction and the skills to solve them. I never would have believed I could be working in the field that I am now. However, I can’t imagine working anywhere else.
