Michael Penick (BA '12)
Since graduating from DePaul, Michael has gone on to join IATSE Local 476, working as a Dolly Grip on shows such as Amazon Prime's
Empire, and NBC's
Med. He attributes Chicago’s thriving film industry to allowing him to pursue his two major passions outside of work, traveling and photography.
“DePaul gave me the necessary on set experience and practical knowledge to make a smooth transition into the professional field, along with a network of extremely helpful and generous people.”
