More About This Degree

Gaetan

I am an editor and motion graphics artist in Manhattan.

I graduated from Marywood in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in communications and I am now an editor and motion graphics artist in Manhattan. I have worked on multiple shows for networks such as MTV, MTV2, VH1, and created mobile content for Forbes' Billionaires List, one of the largest launches they will do this year.

Working in such a competitive field as an independent contractor can be tough but my education from Marywood prepared me and taught me how to work hard for myself and create opportunities. The small class sizes and hands on training I received from my professors enabled me to focus on my skills and gave me the confidence I would later need when cutting an episode in front of producers.
