Why did you choose to go to Ithaca College?
I chose to go to Ithaca College because I became very passionate about
television and film in high school. In addition to this, I was always very
passionate about music and theater. Ithaca seemed to be a good fit because it
has a great program for television, and because of the numerous a cappella
groups and theater troupes on campus, I wouldn’t have to give up music or
theater. Also, there’s free laundry. That was a big deciding factor.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about television. It’s such an important artform that also acts as
a social commentary. So much heart and energy goes into a single production,
and it’s so satisfying to see how it turns out in the end. Not to mention, it’s
timeless. I still watch episodes of The Addams Family and The Dick Van Dyke
show. I’m also pretty passionate about tea. (There are so many different kinds!)
What’s your dream for the future?
My dream for the future would be to be working on a comedy TV show, whether
it be directing or production design. Or maybe I’ll have superpowers. Like
freezing time would be pretty cool.
Life motto/words to live by?
“Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.” -Ron Swanson
Plans for next Semester?
I plan on making some awesome a cappella music with Premium Blend.
Hopefully, I’ll be working on my own show on ICTV.
What do you look for in a partner?
Has to be better than everybody else. (Like me)
What would the average person not know about you?
I have a tail. (Don’t tell anybody, plz)
