Marietta Facilities Lead Assistant

Joined Night Owl: Summer 2018

Major: Mechanical Engineering

Favorite Part about Night Owl: What I really appreciate about this job, that I can’t imagine you’d easily find anywhere else, is the fact that you can pick up skills for a little bit of everything. The Night owl departments are diverse enough to where you can learn fundamental skills and abilities that you can carry with you long after you leave the workplace. 

About me: I was born in Staten Island, New York, however, I predominantly raised right here in Georgia. I was always one for finding out how something worked rather than just accepting things at face value. This thinking is what lead me to Mechanical Engineering coming out of high school. What initially drew me to Kennesaw was the overall high praise I was given of its engineering departments. Looking for work during school hours, I stumbled upon Night Owl Productions. Much of what the Facilities department does was already something I was accustomed to all throughout my life. Combined with a supportive faculty, meeting new people and clients, and getting the satisfaction of having others enjoy an event due to your, my decision to stay at Night Owl is not one I foresee my self regretting.
