We've added another member to our team! We're very pleased to introduce Mike Intaglietta, who'll act as "Presentation Coach" for the DISHES effort.
Mike is an arts administrator and performer from Liverpool, NY. He has been performing and teaching improvisational and stand-up comedy since 1994. Mike co-founded the Thumbs UPstate Improv festival, one of the inaugural DISHES project proposals in 2011, and has since gone on to co-found the Syracuse Improv Collective.
Q. Why did you decide to get involved with DISHES?
Mike - DISHES was a key motivator for the creation of the Thumbs UPstate Improv Festival, which gave birth to the Syracuse Improv Collective: my two chief creative outlets in Syracuse. And we didn't even win. I would love to help more people visualize and realize their own projects.
Q. What is your favorite thing about DISHES?
Mike - The fact that no matter what project gets chosen, the community will be improved because of the ideas generated during the process.
