Major at MMC
After exciting trips as a teenager, attending college in New York City was a dream for Danielle Alberico. Luckily, Marymount Manhattan’s small school environment in a big metropolis proved to be the perfect fit for her: four years later she graduated from the Communication Arts program with a focus in film and video. While enrolled, Danielle completed a number of film and media courses that would help prepare her for life after college, including Writing for Television, Public Relations, film history, and technical courses like film and sound editing. During her time in New York, Danielle completed an internship at Howard Stern OnDemand and took part in a New York Times-featured iPod tour series.
After graduation, Danielle lived and worked in Los Angeles, publishing film industry interviews in Script Magazine (a division of Writer’s Digest) and Moviemaker Magazine. Now, the mom of two daughters is living in Cleveland, Ohio, and is set to debut her first children’s book HERMIT NO NAME. Inspired by a story her father told to her as a child, the book follows protagonist Lucy, who learns the power and impact of spreading rumors and gossip. Danielle’s father passed away in 2013, and the book serves as a legacy to his love of story-telling. Danielle worked with illustrator and animator Caleb Staker for a year on the book, which will be available in mid-April on Amazon and in stores across the country.
