What are some highlights of your involvement in PMA?

Three of the biggest highlights in my involvement of PMA includes 1) acting in The Wolves, and being athletic for a change, 2) starting to do the lighting design for Much Ado about Nothing, and 3) making my honors thesis film The Fixers in some of the longest, coldest, but best weekends of my life with my friends.

What are your favorite memories of PMA?

I loved meeting every single person in the department, whether it was faculty or students. Some of my best friends in the world, I met in this department.


I would like to thank all of the faculty and staff at Schwartz for not only being role models and educators during my time at Cornell, but for also being close friends, and people I will never forget.

Parting Words

I hope that everyone reading this from PMA and their families are safe and healthy. I want nothing else but to be in the Schwartz lobby once again, eat take-out at one of the tables, see friends walk into the building, and then give them a big hug.
