my role

On the Boards was my first taste of experimental theatre and performance art.  In my senior year of high school I was on a team formed in order to introduce more youth to performance art. Along with four of my peers, I attended every production at On the Boards for the 2012-13 season and discussed each the following day with On the Boards staff and Stranger columnist, David Schmader. Our team then chose a medium through which to share this production with the rest of the Teen Tix community, i.e. a response in form of writing, video, etc.

In the summer of 2014 I was able to return to On the Boards as a marketing intern. During this experience my responsibilities included:

  • Editing content using Photoshop and Adobe Premier

  • Managing Vimeo and Youtube pages

  • Creating and managing promotional Tumblr

  • Researching social media data analytic tools
