I am an August 2017 graduate of Penn State University’s Arts Administration program, with a focus in Marketing.
Since the age of nine, I have been
obsessed with immersed in the world of theatre and entertainment. Since the day that I saw my first Broadway show, Wicked, I knew that this was the world that I wanted a professional future in. I started my own website for the show in 2007 mostly so that I would stop annoying my friends and family by talking about it all the time, but that was just the beginning. As time has gone on, not only have I grown to love other shows and artists, but I have become increasingly more fascinated with the behind-the-scenes aspect of the Entertainment Industry as well, and began exploring that interest on my own.
In the Summer of 2016, I interned with Situation Interactive, a Digital Marketing Agency in New York City with an impressive list of Broadway clients. During my time at Situation, I worked on the Creative Strategy team, on projects such as Dear Evan Hansen, The Color Purple, Miss Saigon, Holiday Inn (with Roundabout Theatre Company), and Les Miserables.
In the Spring of 2017, I put on my ARTSA Capstone course, which was a localized version of the 54 Below concert series Miscast. I cast, directed, promoted, acted as emcee, and performed in the show alongside twelve others. The event received a remarkable amount of praise, and was the most well-attended event in the history of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
In January 2018, I made the move to New York City (ok, Jersey City) to begin working in Marketing at Broadway Across America. Upon arrival, I began work on six markets, BAA’s travel program, social and web for the 20th Anniversary Tour of RENT, and so much more in between.
