stacks of booksAs an intern you may find yourself in new situations daily. Today, I entered an office littered with books from the floor up. I noticed an empty bookcase and binders scattered across the room. “What’s happened here?” I wondered.
My boss was in the process of rearranging the office with the goal being a consolidation of two offices and the transformation of the one into a break-slash-conference room. Luckily, I’m a handy-man if need be and was glad to provide a helping hand. This change of pace provided an opportunity to use physical energy in the office as opposed to the more cerebral energy necessary in this field. I think that my boss’s vision will be helpful in the long-run as all University Press members will be able to work among one another.
Another interesting interning experience happened to be our Podcast Experience. Personally, I’ve never recorded a podcast and time really seemed to zip by during the process. The cast of this podcast included me and the staff of the University Press, Corey, Heather, and April (The Managing Editor, The Project Editor, and The Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction, & Poetry Editor, respectively).
Recording was fun and also informative. We discussed the growing popularity of Little Free Libraries.
I learn something new daily as an intern with the University Press and I am enjoying every moment of this experience.

20140528_094132Hi, my name is Mario and I am a junior General Studies major concentrating in Business, Humanities, and Social Studies. I am 23 years old, and for most of those years I have been very interested in the music industry/business. More so than the actual music, I’ve found myself dwelling into the art direction of an album cover, or the actual songwriters of the music and how they function as a team. I am interested in publishing rights and I look forward to gaining valuable insight into the field here at the University Press. I’m curious to see where I will go and what I will learn on this avenue on my journey in life!

Some background information about me, I am from Athens, GA. I was born October 8,1990. I have two older brothers and an older sister. I’m a comic at heart. I am a member of the Recording Academy Student Association. My favorite books have been White Fang, The Metamorphosis, and The Giver. My favorite movie to date is The Raid Redemption, I love action movies and their sound effects/choreography. I like to dance.
