Teen Programs Manager

Hey, I’m Aric, the Teen Programs Manager at the ICA. I am passionate about video games and art. Originally from Boston, I’ve always been driven by curiosity and shaping my perspective through alternative routes of education. In my free time, I’m into anime, skateboarding, and doodling—always seeking opportunities to challenge myself and learn something new. I firmly believe in “you get what you put out,” seeing every experience as a learning opportunity. 

When I was a young warthog, I found my aesthetic lacked a certain appeal, I bumped my head against the current education system, and I didn’t get to excel until I found other settings that catered to me. I found my aesthetic as a cutting-edge fashionable dude, I honed my craft as a master cinematographer, and I have challenged and beaten many Pokémon gyms.
