It’s not everyday you get the chance to work with your musical idols.
However, this summer exactly that happened. I stumbled upon the chance to join an instrument design startup with a small group of amazing people who had a potentially groundbreaking concept. Thanks to Dan Harple and his company Shamrock Ventures I was brought into the fold about a month ago and have been working with the team since.

These past few weeks I’ve been working with a startup company that Atom Factory invested in called Enrou. Enrou is an Fashion based eCommerce company that works with new upcoming fashion designers/artist. Within Enrou I’ve been working work on the Marketing/Partnership team.

This past Fall Semester I took a Digital Marketing course with Professor Stephanie Kellar. In this class one of the topics that we discussed the importance of Social Media. That course truly served as an asset to me. One of the assignments that I’ve been able to do thus far in my Atom Factory journey is work on the Social Media team for their website SMASHD.
On June 3rd 2016, BerkleeICE and IDEO brought together 40 students for a Makeathon for the Berklee SummerLab Internship Program. On a nine-to- five work schedule, students were assigned a brief to discuss, research and prototype, ending with progress presentations to the group. Joel Stevenson, Joanna Mok and Pablo Lalama took the time to tell us about their experiences and takeaways.
“I’m a graduate student of the interaction design, information architecture program at the University of Baltimore. I have had a passion for interaction design for many years since I enrolled in that program, and wanted to branch out and connect with other designers and students interested in interaction design from different academic settings. I’m also an electronic music producer and have been for over a decade. So, when I heard of a possible opportunity at Berklee and IDEO to not only meet other students from various backgrounds interested in interaction design, but to work with them to create new and innovative prototypes that relate to music and technology, I knew it was too good of an opportunity to pass up! Not only was I able to meet fantastic music, business, and design students from various backgrounds, I was able to effectively collaborate with them to solve a problem that exists in the music industry today. The opportunity to gather different perspectives, ideas, and experiences was rewarding enough on its own, but the ability to work as a team and combine all of our strengths from our respective fields to create an ideal product, that exceeded my expectations.” – Joel Stevenson, Design Graduate Student, Belmont University
