As a former DaySpring student, I was enrolled in the academy and spent most of my time heavily spent with our performing arts and technical theater programs up until my graduation in 2017. In 2018 I attended St Louis Community College, where I studied fine arts along with illustration and animation. However, during those years I was still involved with the performing arts, designing sets and painting for community theater companies, as well as the Terry M Fisher theater located on my campus. Since I was very young, drawing and illustrating has been a major part of my life, which has assisted my skills in scenic painting and design when it came to theater. Since I was introduced to tech theater in 2014, it has been a very passion driven part of my life, and as technical coordinator I hope to help other students learn their own passion and admiration for theater production as well.
