Where are you interning this Fall? Have you had any other internships previously?
I'm currently interning at Fool's Gold Records, an independent record label in Brooklyn, New York. Fool's Gold is such a forward thinking business that is crossing the bridges of electronic and hip hop music. Throughout the year we host showcases in cities across the United States and throw parties around the globe. Also, I'm working with event curators BangON! NYC, a production company aimed at creating immersive nightlife experiences. We host festivals that draw crowds of thousands! I've previously worked with Primary Wave Music Group.
 
What have you been working on at your internship? Has it sparked an interest in a career/area of study you hadn't already thought about? Or has it confirmed that you are on the right path?
I work with the digital content manager to ensure our online presence is strong and consistent. We are always collaborating to figure out new ways to get Fool's Gold music into ears around the world. Because the internet age is so strong right now, it is a constant challenge to promote new music and gain new fans.
 
Do you believe your internship experience has helped to prepare you for your future? 
I believe that my time at these different companies has given me a unique insight on my career path. I'm learning that to be successful within the entertainment industry, it is important to connect the dots of different facilitators. There is a cyclical relationship in the music industry that creates symbiosis among business models. I'm also experiencing that the entertainment world is forever changing… be prepared for anything!
 
Any advice for other Lubin students looking for internships?
Be persistent! Many times, a company that you want to intern for will not respond or will say you are not qualified. Always look for new opportunities that will help you grow within the industry and as an individual. Keep working hard, build your resume, and anything can happen.
 
Describe the best thing(s) about your internship:
The best thing about interning with Fool's Gold is listening to all the new amazing music that our artists are putting out. Nothing makes me happier than seeing people who are passionate about great music put out amazing records. At the end of the day, we're all driven by the music, and I'm truly blessed to be a part of that community.
