Congratulations to Beth Lake and Jeff Polunas, our most recent graduates of the sound design program here at UCI! They're both terrific designers, and Mike, BC, and I are proud of them and wish them great success!
Beth hails from Arizona by way of Colorado, but she also spent time at Jacob's Pillow out in Mass. Her thesis design was Arcadia, and she's looking forward to relocating to NYC.
Jeff spent formative years in Ohio, but had been in California (including work for PCPA) for quite a while now. His thesis was a design for Dance Visions, our faculty-choreographed dance concert. He'll stay around the socal area for the time being. Jeff is also getting married this summer, so it's quite an exciting time for him!
They have both been terrific students and designers, and I look forward to the great things they'll do in the future!
