What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? Where other programs were focused on arts management, Northwestern’s program is interested in arts innovation. The hands-on professional experience and entrepreneurship focus made Northwestern’s program stand out to me.
What are you most looking forwards to about the MSLCE program?  I’m very excited for the Speaker Series and the Immersion Trip!
Favorite (song/movie/show/festival/exhibition … )? I just discovered PigPen Theater Co. this year, and they’re amazing! Their shows are part folk tale, part musical, and part puppet show, but they also have some standalone albums as well.
Favorite Chicago Landmark/Attraction:  The Art Institute of Chicago.
Me in 3 words:  Energetic, dedicated, nerdy.
Dream place of residence: San Francisco.
Where are you from? Los Angeles, CA
