I spent most of my high school years acting, and applied primarily to acting conservatories, with the odd liberal arts college. I ended up not pursuing it full-time like I thought I would, focusing a bit more on theatre production and sound design while in college.
In production, I was on the Sock & Buskin board, helping decide the Theatre, Speech and Dance department’s season with other students and faculty. I was also on production workshop, one of the more prominent student-run boards, helping run the theatre.
Regarding sound design, I got a Music degree with a focus on music and sound technology (more formally the Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments program). Here I had a ton of fun working on installations, live electronic performance, and use of the recording studio as a compositional tool.
I still found the odd opportunity to act ;)
I was pretty woeful about archiving my work, so much of it is totally lost or on very old computers I’ve lost (this was all pre-Cloud).
On my pwiki page., I had some of my college accomplishments listed, reproduced here:

I don’t produce as much art as I’d like, but here’s hoping that changes.
