5 Years Out: Life After Graduation

Sometimes I get overwhelmed or frustrated that my career is not moving at the pace I would like. I graduated just over 5 years ago from UNH and I thought it would be good to make a list of professional accomplishments to remind myself of all I have been able to accomplish thus far.

Performances:
   - New Hampshire (4): Fire Giant; Hemingway's Wife; PDP Summer Cabaret; and Love, Loss, & What I Wore
   - Massachusetts (11): Noises Off; Raghead; Nurse Play; Drive; Strange; Solitude, Silence; King Lear; Into the Woods; Accidents of Bread; Baby, it's Cold Outside; and Into that Good Good Night
   - Chicago (4): Grandma D, NMT Cabaret, Liberators, and TOAST!
   - The Murder Mystery Company: 43 different shows public and private in New England and the Midwest

Witch Trials Weekly
I created 52 videos. I wrote all the scripts, hosted a majority of them, and directed co-workers in others. 
I also filmed and edited 8 videos for the primary Wiccan holidays and 2 promotional videos for the Visit 1692 Pass.

Exiled Theatre
Not only did I act in 3 pieces during their premier production, Strange Days, but I went on to serve as Marketing Manager. I post to social media, launched a successful Indiegogo campaign complete with video, designed post cards, and PR posted to several different websites. I also directed my first full-length production in April 2017: No Exit.
