What attracted you to the ARAD program?

I was attracted to the ARAD program for its unique course structure, its small class size, and its location. I appreciate that about half of my courses may be electives, and I feel grateful to be included in a cohort of passionate, driven young professionals. I find New York City endlessly inspiring, and I feel privileged to study here.

How are your studies helping to advance your career goals?

I am a classically trained musician. I believe that it is my responsibility as an artist to develop a strong business acumen so that I may advance my abilities to analyze, forecast, and respond to an ever-changing industry. I view my studies at TC as both an exciting and essential step in my career as a performing arts professional.
