Syracuse University

Masters of Science, Communications

After noticing a continuing pattern of weak public relations causing major losses for young startup artists, I started my own research in the field and decided to apply. The S.I. Newhouse School accepted my application within weeks of its submission for the new Communications@Syracuse program. I recently completed my degree with a speciality in Public Relations.

Global Village

Main Stage Manager

I managed the main cultural stage at Global Village in Dubai. A minimum of 14 shows (and up to 23) perform on the stage daily, with no more than 10 minutes of transition time between 4:30pm and 11:30pm. The shows include cultural performances from around the world, major concerts, and regular mainstage performances that include pyrotechnics, fly cues, and rapid scene changes.

Syracuse University

Bachelor of Fine Arts, Stage Management

I studied at one of the top undergraduate programs for a BFA in stage management. SU was uniquely partnered with the regional professional theatre, Syracuse Stage. As a result, more of my four years were spent in the professional offices than in classrooms. I graduated with honors and distinction in the Dept. of Drama and Panhellenic society for my involvement in Greek Life.

Barrington Stage Company

Interim Assistant to the Managing Director

I was the assistant to senior level management in a well-known regional theatre company. By interacting with everyone involved with the company, from interns to the board president, I developed a full view of the scope of the company and how a nonprofit theatre operates. I also supervised two separate departments and successfully navigated both through a challenging season.
