Hometown: Shirley, NY

Major: Radio and Video Production

Why did you choose your major at Lasell?
I've always been really interested in media. I love both radio and video so much and it's a field I can see myself in for the rest of my life. When I graduate I hope to get a job in either radio or film.

What was it that brought you to Lasell?
The professors all seemed really friendly when I visited the school. I also fell in love with the radio station the second I saw it and most importantly the campus felt like somewhere I'd like to be for the majority of the four years ahead of me.

What activities are you involved in or have been involved in (clubs, activities, athletics, etc.)? 
I'm a member of both WLAS and LCTV.

What do you like to do off campus or in Boston?
I love heading into Boston, it's a super fun city. There's so many venues to see shows at.

Do you have an interesting story or great memory from Lasell that you would be willing to share?
I recently had a band called Makeout on my radio show and they're pretty well known so we had people listening from all over the world. I was also able to film them performing an acoustic set. It was such a fun experience and an opportunity that I definitely wouldn't have without the radio station here.
