When you were young, what did you think you wanted to be "when you grow up?"
When I was young, I was always inspired to be a series of things, such as an astronaut, a chiropractor, doctor, or a rock star!
What career do you hope your first job after graduate will be?
I hope that my first career will start off in the Media Industry working with Television, Film or Music related content. Somewhere in entertainment.
What experience have you had so far that you think is best preparing you to reach that goal?
I believe that being a part of WRHU and Hofstra TV have immersed myself into media culture and work environment. I have also had experiences with 106.1 WBLI and 102.3 WBAB as well as NBC Universal which are great experiences that are preparing me for the industry.
What advice would you have for others who are pursuing this same career?
Ask many questions, be curious and become immersed in the content and operations of media and how it works. Media is a very fast paced environment which includes reacting very quickly to situations so having preparedness whether it's content, technical, business related in the media industry, expect the unexpected.
Who at Hofstra has had the biggest positive impact on you?
I can't narrow it down to just one person, but I believe that the radio station and the personnel that work at the station really created a positive impact in the direction i wish to go in.
