As a recent graduate of the University At Buffalo, with degrees in production, theatre and media studies, I have gained experience in live production, new media, marketing, creative services, audio and video production, design, office management, public relations and event management.
Throughout my time in school, I worked as an event manager and marketing coordinator where I helped manage large on campus events with attendance of over 2,000 students. With multiple undergraduates working under me, I was responsible for delegating jobs, creating spreadsheets for event responsibilities and itineraries. I was also head of public relations and in charge of researching vendors for events. This gave me the opportunity to hone my customer service, public relations and office management skills for other jobs I had the opportunity of holding after graduation.
This past year I had the opportunity to work with Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls, in producing an album out of GCR recording studios located in Buffalo, NY. Being a part of the recording process as an artist as well as being involved in the marketing and selling process, solidified my love for the entertainment and media industry.
I also was able to work as production manager in a theatre in Buffalo NY, where I organized and cast shows, directed productions in addition to building sets, setting lights and running the shows.
Since then, I have had experience at multiple jobs in administrative and sales. Starting at a web design company, I was hired on as sales manager. My responsibilities included, but were not limited to, working with various businesses to customize web designs for their companies. I also had the opportunity to work for an automotive company in a sales and customer service position, where I was the liaison between salesmen and ownership, making sure the customers were getting the service they deserved.
