Tell us a fun fact about you.

I’ve never been stung by a bee, but I’ve stepped on three tarantulas.

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?

Being at USC means being among a community of diverse artists who share openly, ask willingly, and strive for continuous learning. I’m excited and grateful to be challenged by such a community and to continue to grow as an intellectual artist at USC.
