Meet your Equipment Managers
Chris Nichols is a Senior at the College of Saint Rose, majoring in Communications and Film and New Media, also acting as Treasurer for the club Saint Rose Television (SRTV). Being a COM student these last couple of years has been a great experience for Chris. He has been able to learn so much about production, online communication, and more. This past summer, Chris had the opportunity to intern with Disability Right New York (DRNY) as a Marketing and Communications intern. During this internship he was able to get experience in both video and audio production. He had the opportunity to film “A DRNY MyStory” video, working with cameras, lighting, and audio in a real-world setting. Also for his internship, he helped record a weekly podcast called “Empire State of Rights: Close Captioned,” where he was able to learn more about various audio equipment while also learning interviewing skills. With the experiences he has had, he is qualified and excited to help out this year. Chris also has a Cockapoo dog named Emily, loves to ski, and is a triplet.
