 What is your position at the Pioneer?

Entertainment and Arts Editor.

 Why did you want to join the Pioneer?

My cousin, and former editor, Anna Favetta, suggested that I should or else she would inflict acts of violence upon me.

What got you interested in entertainment?

I’ve always had a keen interest in movies, games, theater, and entertainment in general.

Do you have a favorite movie?

It’s a tie between Clerks, Back to the Future, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Tommy, Airplane, The Goonies, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sleepaway Camp, Into The Spider-Verse, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Being John Malkovich, and The Lego Movie.

Do you want to work for or write about the entertainment industry after highschool/college?

Absolutely, one of my dream jobs is working for Saturday Night Live.

 Do you have any shows, movies, or video games to recommend to our readers?

I think students would appreciate Stand By Me (movie), The Outsiders (book), The Goldfinch (book), Clerks (movie), Rec Room (game), and Super Mario Odyssey (game).

I am a Thespian, I am Treasurer for the Glee Club, and I’m auditioning for Jubilee this year.

 Would you like to share any wisdom with our readers?

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Everything will turn out okay eventually. DON’T PROCRASTINATE THEN COMPLAIN YOU DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENT.

I am excited to spend my last year with the seniors and participate in extracurricular activities.
