cv: What is your role at commonvision? How long have you been working there?
bv: I am one of the designers at commonvision! I've been working there since the end of May. It's been a great 3 months!
cv: How/When did you know that you wanted to be a designer?
bv: I didn't know I wanted to be a designer until half way through my first semester here at UMBC. I had taken one design class that semester to see what it was like and realized that I wasn't in the right area of visual arts.
cv: Are there any designs or projects that you are particularly fond of having created?
bv: I did a design in my high school design program where we had to create a logo for a country of our choosing and I used a llama in my design. It was a lot of fun and I ended up really liking how it turned out.
cv: You are also a member of UMBC's Musical Theatre Club. When did you first get into acting and singing?
bv: I acted in my first play when I was in middle school and I fell in love with performing instantly. Music just fell in behind that when I started doing musicals in high school.
cv: What has been your favorite part to play? Which part would be a dream part for you to do?
bv: My favorite I've played by far was the character Abby in a high school production of Arsenic and Old Lace. Making an audience laugh is a very rewarding feeling. I have a lot of dream parts, but I'd have to say that playing Belle in Beauty in the Beast would be pretty awesome.
cv: How come you have never broke out into song in the commonvision office?
bv: I've had tempting moments before, but I've held them back. I don't want to scare anyone away from the office!
cv: What are your plans after you leave commonvision and graduate from UMBC?
bv: Hopefully after I graduate I'll be able to get into the gaming industry. Its been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember!
