PRONOUNS: he/him/his


William is a theatre manager and activist interested in production management. He is graduating with a BA in theatre in May of 2021 after three years of enrollment. 


During his time at Fordham, William was active as a manager, technician, and community leader. William was one of Forham's first student production managers in the studio. As a sophomore, he helped pioneer the position. He charted new waters again during Fall 2020 when he helped create Fordham's first fully virtual studio season by updating reimbursement practices and coordinating the creation and distribution of film kits. As a work-study student, he has guided his peers through main stage load-ins and strikes for the scene shop since Spring 2019. William's most ambitious project was the co-founding of Fordham's BIPOC Alliance, which drafted demands for our theatre program's betterment and passed them on to the faculty at the start of Fall 2020. As a result of these demands and many subsequent meetings, the Fordham theatre Faculty have provided the entire program with equity, diversity, and inclusion training through ArtEquity, restructured their faculty meetings to center social justice issues within the program, and initiated a full curricular review led be the BIPOC faculty.  

As his final semester comes to a close, William is working with the BIPOC Alliance on the second iteration of their demands and helping the spring studio shows wrap production smoothly.
