Throughout the summer, we’ll have blog, photo, and video updates from Maggie Ward, the Full Sail New Media Journalism Master’s grad who is interning on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour. This week, Maggie shows us a day in the life of her fellow Full Sail grad and Warped Tour intern, Ashley Parker.
Ashley Parker graduated from Full Sail’s Show Production & Touring degree program in 2010, and since then, she’s been working as a sound and lighting engineer for a production company based out of Denver, Colorado. That hard work – combined with patience awaiting her big break – has finally paid off. This past spring, after a rigorous application and interview process, Ashley landed an internship on Vans Warped Tour 2013 running sound for the Full Sail University Acoustic Basement stage. In the following video, Ashley discusses life on tour working alongside musicians she has idolized for years.
