"All of my professors had a positive impact on me. In particular, I reached out to Professor Traversari when I was in high school to schedule time to talk about the music business. That conversation ultimately led to my decision to attend Point Park. Once I was enrolled, he was an incredible mentor and helped guide me through my years at Point Park by always taking time to help me advance my career outside of the classroom."
