Welcome to the Class of 2023!

So, we usually do this earlier in the academic year, but like everyone else on the planet, we got pre-occupied with Covid-19 response. Now that our 'new normal' is feeling settled, I'm able to get back to some of the things that weren't quite as pressing before.... which leads me to this:

Mike and I are proud to welcome our incoming first years students to the UCI Sound Design program: the class of 2023:

Costandina Daros is a soon-to-be graduate of Western Michigan University. Throughout her undergrad, she has worked on several productions in both the Theatre and Dance Departments, her favorites including Sound Design for Jesus Christ Superstar and Tribes. In her summers, she has worked at The Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre in Logan, Utah and The Stephen Foster Story in Bardstown, Kentucky. In her time at UCI, she is looking forward to exploring new ways of using sound to enhance storytelling.

Aerik Harbert hails from West Virginia by way of Maryland, where he currently works at Towson University. Before his job at Towson, Aerik worked at the Hangar Theatre and Baltimore Center Stage. He is a graduate of U. Maryland Baltimore County.
