Role at UArts: Associate Director for Undergraduate Admissions

To me, UArts is synonymous with Philadelphia. I first moved to Philly over 10 years ago to begin a BFA program in Film & Video at UArts. At that time, I had no idea what a great impact both the school and the city would have on my life. I am continually inspired by the creative students I meet who are choosing to devote themselves to their art. It is a privilege to be a part of that process and to belong to this tight-knit community of artists.

When I’m not assisting students through the admissions process, I can be found reading Joan Didion, planning my next road trip and eating mountains of all the (really great!) Mexican food that can be found around town.
