Andrew has spent a majority of his life involved in arts and theatre. Having spent enough years in Pittsburgh to earn a Bachelors of Science and a Masters of Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University, he is excited to bring his experience and expertise to Aftershock Theatre. His research on Pittsburgh’s cultural history has brought him to conventions and condemned buildings alike and continues to be a driving passion. In his free time, he enjoys short walks, long naps, enormous books, and of course, art.
Larissa graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BFA in Communication Design and a Minor in Vocal Performance. Whether it be in the spotlight or behind the scenes, theatre has been an integral part of her life ever since she was a wee lassie. Although she spends her weekdays in the worlds of design, healthcare, and insurance, her evenings and weekends are spent in the world of theatre. She performs in local Pittsburgh theatre companies and volunteers as an usher in the Cultural District. Larissa is extremely passionate about giving back to the 'Burgh that she has grown to love. She is currently immersed in personal research that connects the seemingly disparate worlds of design and theatre by applying movement techniques (i.e. Laban and Viewpoints) to interactive elements of design both on digital screens and in dimensional space.

Andrea is a graduate of the Master of Arts Management program at Carnegie Mellon; in her free time, she enjoys drawing, traveling, and checking out different art venues.
