Sample Bio

I think we may need to take a look at some examples of a program bio.

A student bio might look like:

Ima Leko (Lighting Designer) is pleased to light its seventh show at Fresnel HS. Leko has sparked to life since joining tech crew. Ima thanks Tharon, Jules, and

Stanley for all their design help.

C. Wrench (Electrician) This is C's last show here at Fresnel HS. He is proud to welcome his brother, Altman Wrench to crew. C. is looking forward to attending Rosco University.

Woody Hammer (Master Carpenter) has built eight shows in the last two weeks. He has also served as supervisor to "strike" and "Thumb Pounded." He thanks Stanley

and Estwing.

Here are a few professional bios. Yes, they are more than 30 words long. You get to have more words when you have more years under your belt.
