Meet the Directors
Studio Art major Caley English continues to lend her talents to TAD as a member of the Video Team. By combining her major and her talents with video production, Caley is able to fully explore her creativity.
Caley’s talents are actually what led her to TAD. When she heard about an opening through a network of Taddies located at the art gallery she worked at, Caley became eager to apply. Since joining the Video Team, she has expanded upon her skills in both filming and editing. While her work in the past allowed her to explore more of the technical aspects of video making, she hopes this year will allow her to work more with different editing softwares and all the capabilities they have to offer.
Caley’s love for art extends past her time in class. Her hobbies include music, thrifting, and creating art. She hopes to combine her passions in her artwork and find ways to implement filmmaking. “I want to make it interdisciplinary, so I think that making a video is a really good way to tie in visual art.”
In the next five years, Caley hopes to find a job in the city. She loves the challenge that TAD brings and hopes that her career will encourage the same passion.
Marley Wickum serves on TAD’s Gallery Team. She is a senior Psychology major with a minor in Non-Teaching Special Education from Virginia Beach, Virginia. Marley was encouraged to apply to TAD by her roommate, Photography Team Member Lauren Telinde. She was drawn to Gallery Team because of the multifaceted workflow it demands. “I think it ties in the two sides of my brain that are administrative but also super creative and hands-on.”
In the future, Marley hopes to work in Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy, helping young kids with autism to be successful. She was drawn to TAD by the concept of gaining experience in a field so different from what she is studying and working towards. While still gaining valuable professional experience, Marley is excited to use her creativity.
Outside of TAD, Marley spends her time drawing and painting, touting her self -taught skills. She is also involved in the Catholic Campus Ministry as well as within the Psychology major, working as a tutor and being a member of the Psychology Honor Society. She also loves to travel, specifically for mission work in Haiti. “I’ve been a couple of times and learned a lot about myself and about the world.”
