Alumni in the Arts Share Advice with Students

Teacher Jon Fortmiller with four happy alumni artists in the lobby of the arts center

In September, four alumni with careers in the arts shared their professional journeys with Middle and Upper School students during special assemblies in Anschutz Family Theatre.  

Students learned how USC Professor Martzi Campos ‘03 launched a career in video game design and how her brother, Will Campos ‘04, became one of Spotify’s top-100 podcasters, in addition to his work as a filmmaker/digital creator. Corbin Jones ‘11 shared his life as a professional musician, including tales of touring with Beyoncé and Jay Z, performing at venues large and small (including Coachella and Tiny Desk Concert), and working with Lizzo. Finally, Zach Madison ‘11 told students about his work as a stage manager at the metro area’s second-largest professional theater complex—The Arvada Center—where he makes a job out of doing what he loves best.

You can watch the full Upper School assembly here. Thank you to our alumni panelists!
