Executive Producer
Sydney Cook


School/Year: COL '23
Majors: Biology of Global Health

Minors: Statistics, Pre-Med
Hometown: Flemington, NJ

Sydney is beyond excited to serve as Nomadic's Executive Producer this year! She has been involved with Nomadic since her freshman fall and cannot wait to give back to the club that has given her so much joy over the last two years. When not knee-deep in the world of student-run theater, she can be found furiously math-ing away in Lau or mixing chemicals in a Regents lab because that is the glorious life of a STEM student. She also loves exploring new places to eat and things to do off-campus -- and is always looking for new people to adventure with. Sydney is so grateful to be working with her superstar board members this season and is committed to providing safe, fun spaces for our members to do what they love, especially after showing immense resilience during this year apart!

Associate Producer
Paul James


School/Year: SFS '23
Major: CULP

Minors: Arabic, Philosophy
Hometown: Schwarzach, Austria

Paul is excited to be nomadic's Associate Producer for this season. He has assistant stage managed and directed shows for nomadic in his first two years as part of the Georgetown theatre community. True, one of those never opened (moment of silence), and the second was online, so maybe he's slightly cursed...but at least the club is in good hands with Sydney and the rest of the star-studded nomadic board. He loves being in the theatre at unholy hours of the night, but when he eventually has to leave, he's usually wrapped around a redeye on Lau 2 writing an article and keeping his professors on edge by turning in last-minute papers. s c r e a m

Technical Director
Pace Schwarz


School/Year: COL '23
Major: History

Minors: STIA (Science, Technology, & International Affairs)
Hometown: Baltimore, MD; Milwaukee, WI


Pace is thrilled to serve as this season’s Technical Director with the rest of Board 40! An actor at heart, he’s been suckered into building sets, hanging lights, and mowing grass (don’t ask) for Georgetown Co-Curricular Theater ever since his freshman fall, and has loved every second of it! Outside of the theater, you can find him singing in the chamber choir, skiing, wrestling, or staring out the windows of Lau 5 at 4am, writing yet another 15-pager on the horrors of anticommunism (do ask). Starting with Firebringer in Fall 2019, he has performed or TD’d in 5 Georgetown shows across both Nomadic and M&B’s real and virtual stages. He cannot wait for the action-packed, exciting, and groundbreaking collaborations of Season 40, and hopes to see Nomadic grow bigger, better, and more inclusive than ever.

Business Manager
Ava Gaus


School/Year: COL '23

Major: Political Economy & Justice and Peace Studies
Hometown: Pompano Beach, FL

Ava Gaus is so excited to be serving as Business Manager of Nomadic this year. She first worked with Nomadic as the Assistant Producer for The Wolves during her freshman year. Since then, she has worked as the Co-Publicity Director for Dear Elizabeth, and she is excited to be choreographing the co-production of Cabaret in the fall. Outside of doing theatre, Ava can be found dancing to Taylor Swift songs, drinking an iced hazelnut Dunkin' latte, or attempting (and failing) to crochet. She is honored to be working with so many amazing people while helping put on this season's shows!

Publicity Director
Lily Brown


School/Year: SFS '23
Major: STIA (Science, Technology, & International Affairs)

Minors: Biology, French, Pre-med
Hometown: Cohasset, MA

Lily is honored to be your Publicity Director for this season! A little clumsy and discombobulated, Lily can usually be found wandering campus in search of her lost phone or keys. When she is not running late, Lily is usually doing homework late night at Lau, watching a hockey game (GO BRUINS), or designing costumes for a student theatre production. She runs on iced tea and conversations with friends, family, and really anyone who will listen. Lily loves to organize and is very detail oriented and is always in search of feedback and constructive ideas from anyone, and everyone!

Social engagement coordinator
Joseph Ravago


School/Year: COL '23
Major: African American Studies & Women and Gender Studies
Minor: Anthropology
Hometown: Temecula, CA

Joseph is beyond excited to be Social Engagement Coordinator this season! He is most often found either trying to form a revolution or having a political debate. If that's not the case then he can almost always be found cooking something in his floor's common room or watching an excessive amount of superhero content. Georgetown was his introduction to staged theatre and since he became involved, he has become fully engulfed with shows and the community. Joseph would love to hear from each and every one of you with any and all ideas about making Nomadic a more inclusive place for all. He urges you to voice whatever concerns or ideas you have as they will help make this season the best it can be!
