Why study creative arts and communications?
Be a bold, original voice
“My goals are always changing. I’ve been passionate about documentaries for many years and I’ve worked on amazing projects. But lately I’ve been wanting to tell my own stories, which has led to some short films in the drama space.”
Make your mark
“I would definitely say that it’s important to make work that you’re passionate about. That sounds like a really obvious thing to say, but I think the viewer can always tell when an artist lives and breathes their work.”
Execute creative ideas
“The biggest highlight of my time with MAC was covering New York and Paris Fashion Weeks. I was able to work closely with designers, makeup artists and models to create unique, branded content for our global social channels, which was an incredible experience.”
