I am a Masters of Environmental Science candidate at Villanova University, currently writing my thesis. I did not get to that point in a straight line. I went to NYU and got a BA in theater, then I got an MFA in design and technical production from Brooklyn College in 2010. I returned to the Boston area and worked as a freelance designer and carpenter for a few years before deciding that theater was not how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. After doing a bunch of soul searching and research I decided I wanted to go into the environmental field. I took prerequisite courses at Northeastern University and other colleges before applying to Masters programs. I hope to continue to do research in the environmental field.
