Thank you all for participating in the Mass Cultural Council Institute – Unleashing the Power of Culture - on March 17th. Five hundred of you came from cities and towns across the state to meet your colleagues, learn from others and understand your importance as an economic driver in your communities. What incredible energy you brought with you and we here at the Mass Cultural Council are so inspired by the work that you are doing day in and day out to weave the Power of Culture into the fabric of your communities. Thank You!

Before joining the team at Amherst Cinema in January 2017, I worked at the non-profit Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY where I served as the Associate Director. Prior to that, I was a Film Programmer and Administrative Director at the historic Roxie Theater in San Francisco. I earned my MA in Film Studies from San Francisco State University, where I also instructed an undergraduate course entitled Cinematheque Management that taught students about the film exhibition industry. I received my BA in Philosophy and Film from Clark University, and am greatly enjoying being a Massachusetts resident once again! I am thrilled to be working with a wonderful group of Amherst Cinema volunteers who help us to raise support and awareness.
