When deciding between schools, why did you pick USC?
The location and size of the school, the diversity of the student body and the opportunities that USC and SDA provide.

How has being an SDA student helped you be a stronger artist?
Each of my classes and professors have helped me become a stronger artist through direction, observation and exercises. Also, being in multiple shows has been beneficial. They have each been positive experiences. My degree lets me have space in my schedule to pursue minors, which helps me grow as an artist as well.
