    Business Director

    Walter, an Ithaca native, most recently worked at Kionix in the Finance department. He has a long background in the entertainment industry where he has done everything from performing, to building sets, to working in the Wardrobe
    department. He began his professional career in entertainment at the Hangar Theatre in the early 1990s. His path eventually led him to Broadway where he worked as a principal dresser on The Lion King. He also worked as an ensemble dresser on Beauty and the Beast. While in New York City, he also had opportunities to work on television, film, and at Radio City Music Hall (The Christmas Spectacular), all in the Wardrobe departments. Walter has an MBA with a focus in Networks and Communications from the Keller School of Management and a BA in Psychology from the University of Rochester. He is very excited to return to the Hangar, where it all began.
