Event description

Description

Are you interested in film, television, and digital media but unsure where to begin? The ConnectNext speaker series is a bi-weekly TED-like event that takes place at UConn Stamford and UConn Hartford campuses. Running from September through December, these small intimate talks connect professionals from Connecticut’s leading content producers to high school and undergraduate students seeking advice about their next steps toward a successful career as a designer, animator, filmmaker, and other exciting roles emerging within the digital media industry.

Our ConnectNext Speaker for December has kept up with the changing landscape of digital media.

Catherine studied both Costume Design and Fine Arts at the University of Kansas, where she majored in Sculpture and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

She has been with NBC since 1984, first in News, where she served as Lead Designer with NBC Nightly News, NBC Election coverage, and the Today Show.

In 2000, she began her tenure with NBC Sports, as a designer for the Games of the XXVII Olympiad in Sydney, Australia. Since then, she has been part of the design team for eight more Olympics, many major Golf championships--including The Open, The US Open, and The Ryder Cup--and numerous other sports properties, such as The Triple Crown, the Summer Championship Series and NBC Sports Films. She has helped to shape the look of Football Night in America, most recently with a major redesign of the studio show. She is looking forward to serving as a Lead Designer for the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo.

Catherine has received numerous Emmys throughout her career for her artistic contributions to both News and Sports.
