Imagining myself leaving USC in just a week and a half seems surreal. I’m graduating a semester early, and I couldn’t be more excited to move on to the next chapter of my life in San Jose, CA. But I’m sad to leave the friends I’ve made over my time here at USC. I keep [...]

This summer I was a part of the Dornsife’s Gateway Internship Program. I had the incredible opportunity to work at Sony Pictures Animation! For 8 weeks I worked right by the Sony Lot in Culver City. I had never had a full time job before, and the idea of such a time intensive internship was [...]

Growing up in Los Angeles, I’ve always gotten heat from my East Coast friends around this time. Los Angeles seasons are a little less intense than other places in the country. Our leaves change color and fall from the trees, and the temperature dips, but in a milder way than, say, Vermont. I love a [...]

Especially Fridays. My other favorite part of spring semester is that there are so many three-day weekends, and since [...]

Today I was working on a group assignment with two fellow classmates for my film editing class. “So, what did you two do last night?” one partner asked. My other partner launched into a description of a fantastic, authentic taco place she visited with her boyfriend. Sounded delicious. “What about you?” she asked me. “Oh, [...]

I’m a Dornsife student, but I’m also super into movies and television, which is why I picked up a Cinematic Arts minor from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Which, by the way, is the #1 film school in America. #justsayin. This semester I got the opportunity to put some of my entertainment industry knowledge [...]

Howdy kids, I’m back with a hopefully exciting recap of this semester’s adventures! First off, academics. Pretty much all of my classes this semester had multiple midterms, so unfortunately, midterm “week” seemed more like a midterm season with no definitive end point. Needless to say, many late nights were spent studying away at Leavey Library [...]
