About me

He became so popular that students sought him outside the Help Desk for additional assistance with their technological inquiries and troubleshooting. Through his work at the Help Desk, George continues to actively monitor and study emerging and developing technology trends on a daily basis. After arriving in Austin, TX in November 2011, he began working at Charles Schwab as a Technical Analyst. In August 2016, he was promoted to Business Process Analyst at the firm.

In December 2014, George received an award, 2014 Help Desk Institute (HDI) Analyst of the Year for the Greater Austin Area.

Theatre and Dance

George is a 2011 graduate of The College of Wooster with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and Dance. He received cum laude and the William C. Craig Prize for Theatre for most contributions to the Little Theatre program. Through his studies he has become well versed in many aspects of theatre and dance, particularly stage management.

George started his career in stage management working on West Side Story and Nunsense as an assistant stage manager for Jersey Productions in Cincinnati, Ohio in summer 2008. He continued his professional work with The Ohio Light Opera during their 2011 summer festival as an assistant stage manager for Camelot, Jubilee and The Fortune Teller. He was promoted to stage manager of the Ohio Light Opera’s premiere of Leo Fall’s operetta Madame Pompadour.

During his senior year at Wooster he developed an undergraduate thesis as part of Wooster’s Independent Study Program titled “The Electric Current: Presenting the Changing Waves in Gender and Sexuality.” His project investigated how alternative identities based on gender and sexuality were restricted by patriarchal ideology in twentieth-century American theatre. The research and thesis resulted in a devised performance in February 2011 based on scenes from Take Me Out, Angels in America, Part I: Millennium Approaches, and Cloud 9. These scenes were weaved together with original linking narration to hold a conversation with the audience in a non-traditional but engaging manner. Due to his exceptional writing and performance work, George received honors on his independent study from the Department of Theatre and Dance.

George is a founding member of The Shakesperiments, a student theatre troupe committed to presenting Shakespearean drama to the college campus. At the organization, he served as the company manager and head of advertising.

In dance, George performed in and stage managed Dance in the Gallery, a performance investigation based on a traveling exhibition of Andy Warhol’s polaroids at The College of Wooster Art Museum. The production was performed alongside the exhibition in the same space in April 2010 (video fo performance). George later served as the production stage manager for the annual Stage Door: Fall Dance Concert in November 2010 for the Department of Theatre and Dance.

Internationally, George studied at the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin, Ireland through IES Abroad, the Institute for the International Education of Students from September to December 2009. While taking courses in acting, devising, movement and voice, he participated in a performance showcase demonstrating the advanced course work he studied during the semester.
