How are you involved in PAC, and how long have you been involved?
As President, I've been involved since the start of the Performing Arts Council in September 2014 when it was just an idea in the heads of a few crazy students. We worked to make it a student organization (which happened in December 2014) and then worked on making connections within the community and building the team up to its current 20 member size! Overall though, I work to see the mission of PAC (to foster a culture in which performing arts can flourish by serving as a resource to student performing arts organizations and their liaison to the University) come to life here at Penn State in any way that I can!
What other performing arts groups are you involved in on campus?
Penn State Thespians as Treasurer and member
What is your favorite thing about PAC?
I love all of the people that I get to work with because they all have a passion for the performing arts and Penn State. If you want to be involved with PAC there is no way to separate your love for the performing arts and PSU. And getting to work with those people really infuses excitement into the work because I feel the exact same way.
If you had to describe your performing arts experience at Penn State in one word, what would it be?
What is your signature karaoke song?
"Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson
What is your favorite arts experience?
My favorite arts experience was the opportunity to technical direct "In the Heights" when the Penn State Thespians produced it in the spring of 2014. I could not have had more fun or worked with a better group of people than during that phenomenal performance!
