Hometown: Montclair, ~*New Jersey*~ NOT Joisey, no one says that. Major: Theater/Perpetual Unemployment
What are you involved in?
I’ve directed 5 shows between CU Players, the Columbia Musical Theater Society, and NOMADS, I’m the outgoing President of CU Players and long time Board Member, I’ve been working on the development of a new play with a production company called SimonSays Entertainment for the last year, I’m a pro at having/suffering from almost-post-grad/aspiring theater director anxiety, and I have been interning in the Literary Department of the Public Theater since January!
ALL things Dick Wolff (Chicago PD, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Law and Order: SVU) though it is QUALITY television, and obviously a healthy dose of Pretty Little Liars every week.
Favorite memory from Barnard?
Oh god. SO MANY, I couldn’t possibly name one, ranging from all the theater in the world, to writing my thesis on “Hamilton,” to living on SulzReid2 my freshman year. Still, after our four years, I’m finally in a place where I know who my truest friends are, and I have the utmost faith that they will still be there after May 17th. So, my favorite memories have been the times this year where I’ve taken that one cliche second to think, “This badass bitch in front of me is fantastic. I’m so happy we’re friends and that we’re going through this crazy time called college together.” Whether it’s been on a 7 day trip to Paris with two of my best friends over spring break, or while debriefing a stupid night with another one of my best friends, or catching up with a friend that I adore and knowing that, after not talking all semester, we can still catch up over a g&t like it’s only been minutes. So those moments of being reminded that I’ve got people going through this with me who are likely to stay there with me were definitely my favorite.
