About Me

Hi there! My name is Schuyler Girion. I'm a graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in English Literature where I received the H.W. Hill Scholarship for extraordinary work. After graduating I took on the role of Assistant to the Director of New Work at The Public Theatre. While there, I was in charge of the detailed work of keeping the schedule of a senior staff member of an elite off-Broadway theater. This involved communication and coordination with high-profile performers, directors and playwrights. I subsequently jumped into a 125-person community ensemble production, where I managed performance messaging and organization for the entire ensemble as well as community partner organizations from all 5 boroughs of NYC. I have since taken on freelance work as a dramaturg (editor/researcher) for emerging artists as well as social media content writer for a small independent theatre company. I love communicating with people and am passionate about creating clear and consistent messaging. Once I understand how the machine of a business works, I am keen to become and active and efficient player within it. If you feel that we might be a good fit please reach out, I look forward to hearing from you!
