Most influential person you have met at SUNY Plattsburgh so far and why? Most influential person: My Television station operations professor, Damien Quinlann. I was given the special opportunity to work alongside professor Quinlann as his teachers assistant the second semester of my freshman year. I taught students how to use state-of-the-art equipment as well as mentor them through the various projects assigned. Professor Quinlann's connections helped me receive an internship at a leading technology company. Professor Quinlann went above and beyond in his effort to ensure every student's understanding of the material. From the opportunities professor Quinlann has given me, I have grown as a successful individual.

Your favorite experience at SUNY Plattsburgh and why? PSTV Live Night. Every semester, the acting class of PSTV performs a three hour live broadcast from the Yokum Hall Communications Center.  Students are put to the test performing their first live broadcast over cable TV. Live night was an incredible learning experience for everyone and I look forward to participating again.

Favorite spot on campus and why? Memorial Hall Fitness Center.  From free weights to elliptical machines, the fitness center offers students unlimited access to lift, run or anything in between. The fitness center also loans sporting equipment and gives access to tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts. I find myself at the fitness center as often as possible.

Year: Junior
Campus Activities: WQKE: E board News Director, Talent for PSTV, Red Zone, Coffee House Committee, Hall Counsel.

Most influential person you have met at SUNY Plattsburgh so far and why? I definitely can’t choose just one so I'd have to say the class Television Station Operations (PSTV) as a whole. I sometimes used to question my major and if I really loved it, but after taking that class I was sure I loved it. The people who I have worked with in TV crews have defiantly played role in my passion for TV.

Your favorite experience at SUNY Plattsburgh and why? Going to the hockey games, because there is just so much energy and unity. It's awesome and really makes the school feel more like a home.

Favorite spot on campus and why? The central area where Subway and Griddles are. I have so many memories of watching really cool acts at coffee house as well as being on radio shows in the WQKE lounge behind Subway.
