Bachelor of Arts, Theatre: Performance and Directing – May 2011
Fort Lewis College, Durango, CO
Cumulative GPA 3.62
I am a recent theater graduate of Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado. I graduated with a degree in Performance and directing but my education was not limited to these areas in any means. I had the unique opportunity to not only master my skills in my areas of study but to also acquire and build upon other necessary theater skills. During my time in school I was able to build upon my performance and directing skills, including dance and choreography, but also to develop skills in areas outside my chosen expertise such as technical theater and design (Sound,Lighting, projection and costuming and make up), Front and Back of house operations ( house manager, box office, stage manager run crew). Areas of my education that I have built and developed also include, Production, Puppetry, and theater education. While studying i had the opportunity to work not only with my accredited professors but with guest artists such as Kari Margolis and Traci-lyn Thomas.
