What are you involved in on campus? Emertainment Monthly, Video Game Columnist Emerson College Conduct Board, Student Member EC League of Legends Club, President & Founder

What can we expect with your work with these organizations? Well. For the EC League of Legends Club I hope to make it a Student Government Association Recognized Club. Last week it was formally recognized by Riot Games and became a member of the League of Legends Collegiate program. I am very passionate about video games and the competitive video game community. My personal goal for the club is to make sure it lasts after I graduate next year! I think competitive gaming is a young community but just like any “sports” club it shows a lot of promise for helping young people connect with one another. I hope to make it an important part of the Emerson College Extra Curricular! As for the other two clubs, I’m a happy member of both. I spend most of my administrative abilities on the League Club so am happy to just be a participant in the others.

What can we expect from you in the future (project wise)? Despite being a post-production major and following a career path that is heavy in “projects” I’m actually considering going onto grad school or trying to find a way into the video game industry. This means that the projects I do aren’t so much editing related or film related but projects that keep me up-to-date on the video game world! My project for this summer is to get a paper published that I wrote last year about the History of the MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). As stated above I’m also interested in getting involved in the E-Sports (Electronic Sports) community!

Who or what inspires you? My parents are a huge inspiration to me. They’re two people who do what they do because they love it and that’s something I try to strive for in my everyday life. They’re kind and caring and a lot of fun to be around. They’ve given me so much and I can only hope that I make them proud and that someday I can give back to them too.

Biggest accomplishment so far at Emerson? I started a club. And got it recognized by one of the largest, most successful video game companies in the world. Next step: get it recognized by the College. I guess it’s totally unrelated to my major but as I see it I’ve built up a community of a lot of awesome people and I’m proud of that.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Doing something I love. My favorite quote ever would be: “Far and Away the Best Prize Life can Offer is the Chance to Work hard at Work Worth Doing” – Teddy Roosevelt.

Dream job? Riot Games in their Video Post Production sector working on their live E-Sports shows.

If you could trade lives with a celebrity for one day, who would it be and why? Ellen. Why. I guess she just seems like a good-hearted person who loves seeing the brightness in the world around her. I’m a huge fan of her.
