The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Before joining the ETC community, Danielle earned her B.S. in Computer Science from Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, WV. While at WJU she participated in Music Ministry, a student group of singers and musicians who provide music for the on-campus chapel services, she joined the Computer Club, and she actively participated in the rewarding community service opportunities available through her school. She became both the director of the 11:00 Mass choir and the president of the Computer Club after two years.
During her summers, Danielle had the privilege to work in several unique locations aross the country, including the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, WV and Yellowstone National Park. These opportunities inspired her to follow her passions for combining technology with public interaction. She struggled to find a specific outlet for these passions until she attended the 2008 SIGGRAPH conference as a student volunteer. The conference opened her imagination and gave her the direction she needed.
When she found the Entertainment Technology Center, Danielle knew this was where she belonged. The collaboration between technology and art for the purpose of creating interactive and entertaining environments appealed to everything she loves. She plans to explore the limitless creative options available at the ETC and looks forward to creating novel and exciting experiences for the world community.
