Communications and Industry Relations Assistant

Michaela Newman is a singer, songwriter and storyteller from Austin, Texas. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Public Relations in 2019 with a minor in Arts Management and Administration. Michaela first joined the School of Design and Creative Technologies as a student worker in October 2018 and never looked back. As a UT student she spent her time working in the Austin music scene as much as she possibly could, including stints at iHeartRadio, Nine Mile Records & Touring, Giant Noise, and Austin City Limits Radio.

When she isn't on SDCT's social media (shout out to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), Michaela is usually writing and recording music. An avid music lover, concert-goer, and band shirt-wearer, Michaela loves her job at SDCT because she is surrounded by students and faculty who are shaping the future of entertainment.
