“I make magic on a daily basis.”

My coolest internship experience at Marymount Manhattan College was working for the makeup artist of Wicked, Craig Jessup ’05—we became really close and are still in touch now.  The internship introduced me to amazing individuals and gave me a look into the world of a makeup artist on a Broadway show.

I now live in Orlando, FL and am an entertainer for Walt Disney World. I get to hang out with a few of the characters and make magic on a daily basis. It’s a truly rewarding job to be able to see children smile or scream with joy.  Marymount gave me the tools to adjust to the moment and to find a dream and go after it with all that I have. It took me eight auditions before I got a position with Disney, and I couldn’t be happier with where I am today.
