“I’ve been with BIG for about six years and in that time I’ve done just about everything from be a student, front desk volunteer, host, light and tech guy, performer, director, coach, teacher and occasionally janitor. I’m proud to have done all those things with BIG. More than any other thing in my life have, BIG has provided me with so many tools and opportunities to learn new things and grow personally. I’ve met the most wonderful, weird and eclectic group of people who I never would have encountered without improv and whom I’m now privileged to call friends.”
