Erik Michel is pursuing a major in Film Studies and a minor in Computer Science. On campus, he is a member of the Phi Sigma Pi Honor Fraternity and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. He also is a part of the Canterbury Association, the Episcopal ministries at the College and plays trombone in the Pep Band. He was also the webmaster for the W&M Global Film Festival for the 2013 festival year.
He hails from Goldvein, Virginia, a town so small there isn’t even a post office. His interest in new media began when he received his first Game Boy as a kid. Since then, he has expanded his love of art and new media through movies, television and music, as well as an appreciation for all other art forms. When not in classes, he enjoys watching movies he has never seen, catching up on past TV shows, jamming to some good music and playing video games, an under-appreciated art form in his opinion.
