  1. What is your favorite aspect of your job at YU?

My favorite aspect would probably be the variety of projects that I work on. Even though all of my projects center on YU and marketing YU, there are so many different projects from all of our departments that I never have a dull day. I’m always learning something new and trying out different techniques which makes each project unique.


  1. What profession did you think you would one day hold when you were a child?

In high school I had a long stretch where I thought I would be a physical therapist. I got pretty good at giving massages and I used to have lines of people waiting to get one. One of the things that pushed me away from physical therapy was the idea that sometimes you have to cause physical pain to someone to help them get better. I’m sure they teach you do deal with it in PT school, but I never got that far.


  1. What has been your favorite video or project that you’ve worked on at YU?

My favorite project would be the Happy Hanukkah video. It was an incredibly challenging video to produce and we were working on a tight deadline. I learned a lot through that project and I was amazed at the reaction that we received and I think it had a really positive message.


  1. What would your colleagues be surprised to learn about you?

During high school, I worked several summers in renovations and construction. Lifting hurricane-proof windows is not easy.
