Personal Summary

mike Rundle

I am a student at Columbia College Chicago studying photography and creative advertising with plans to graduate in May of 2020.

As an artist with a demonstrated history of success in creative direction, video production, and digital communications, I am searching for a position to utilize and expand my technical and interpersonal skillset.

“In the same vein as any technological process, photography has evolved quickly and considerably in its short existence. Perhaps Columbia is ahead of that evolutionary curve and made the right decision in consolidating darkrooms. Even though digital photography continues its industry takeover, I would still take that sweet smell of stop bath over the blue light of my Mac.”

Excerpt from “Columbia Should Not Abandon Analog Photography,” 2018

“Fans looking for a fresh take on female-fronted country, rejoice – Aileeah Colgan is on the rise. Her latest release, a cover of Brett Young’s 2017 track “Mercy,” sheds light on her versatility, complete with soaring vocals and chilling sentimentality that is sure to stir even the most seasoned country fans. Every crisp and clear note is backed by stunning visuals that rival the production value of material you might see from one of Music Row’s highest offices. For this small-town girl, the only place to go from here is up.”
