Ashley Alvarado

Ashley Alvarado

I am a senior English major and marketing minor from the almighty state of Texas (Dallas, to be precise). While I do miss Texas, I love calling Belmont home. To keep busy at school, I work with the Boulevard Team, serve as a College of Arts and Sciences Ambassador, and am an officer in my sorority Kappa Alpha Theta. In my spare time, you can find me on Pinterest, working on my blog, or listening to Pandora. After Belmont, I hope to write and edit books and see many, many musicals.

Kit Barker

Kit Barker

I am a sophomore from Knoxville, Tennessee, double majoring in Marketing and Management Information Systems. I came to Nashville to see the sights and learn as much as possibly could while at Belmont University. On campus I am involved in Enactus, Kappa Alpha Theta, am founding member UNICEF’s Campus Initiative, and now, the Boulevard Team. With so many avenues of experience at my disposal, it’s hard to say what I will do when I graduate. My dream jobs range from working with start-up non-profits to wanting to be a Marketing manager for Disney. In my spare time you are likely to find me on my computer working on coding, out with friends enjoying the Nashville music scene, or out for a run.

Nikki Blais

I am a Junior marketing major from a small town outside of Boston, Massachusetts! I started my college career at the University of New Hampshire and made my way down to Belmont a year later. I discovered my passion for social media while working at the North Face this past summer. On campus, I am a member of Phi Mu, and within that organization, I am assistant treasurer and on social committee. A few fun facts about myself: I start celebrating Christmas in July, Carrie Underwood is my idol, and I would eat Cold Stone Creamery for the rest of my life if I could. After school, I would love to move to a big sports town (like Chicago or New York) and do marketing for a major sports team, but staying in Nashville doesn't sound so bad either!

I am a junior Music Business Major from Atlanta, GA. As a child, I wrote songs, recorded and performed. I had dreams of becoming a star in Nashville. However, my dreams quickly redirected when my stage fright grew worse and worse. I fell in love with working behind the scenes of the music business, such as promoting artists, handling their social media accounts, and designing flyers for shows. Right now, I am interning for an Americana-Country artist handling her fan page and sending out newsletters. In my spare time, you can catch me at local shows in Nashville, obsessively blogging on Tumblr, or eating at Chipoltle.

I am a senior Audio/Video Production major from a small town in Arkansas. I began here just over two years ago and will be graduating in May. While here, I patterned with two other Belmont Students to create Amplify Entertainment Group which supports musicians in the ever changing world of modern music through the curation of creative content. After laying the groundwork for Amplify almost a year and a half ago, we now have grown a client list that stretches from Florida to New York to California all through the great help of social media. Upon graduation I plan to expand Amplify by setting up services near other universities in cities such as Boston, Atlanta, and LA. My goal is to provide an entry point to new artists that will allow them to market their talents and find success.

I am a Freshman Audio/Video Production major from Tulsa, OK. I play the cello and the guitar and I love to make music. I play in the Belmont Symphony as well as in a string quartet. I started doing photography as a hobby, but after taking an audio engineering/video production class at a local college in Tulsa I fell in love with creating pictures and videos. I have since worked on the media team at New Life Ranch over the summer. I also love Tulsa (seriously check it out), hiking and fishing and anything in the outdoors, and spending way too much time editing photos for my instagram.

I am a freshman psychology and elementary education double major from Atlanta, Georgia. When exploring college options, a small school was at the bottom of my list, but when I stepped onto Belmont's campus I found my first true love. At Belmont, I'm a member of Kappa Alpha, Belmont Swim Club, and the Boulevard Team. In my free time I enjoy exploring Nashville, spending time with my friends, hiking and babysitting!

I am a second semester Sophomore Entertainment Industry Studies Major here at Belmont. I grew up a in Brick, NJ at the shore. At about fourteen years old I discovered my passion for photography, promotion, and production of live music from obsessively seeing the Jonas Brothers. A year later, I created an online music publication called Big City Thoughts which is now a digital magazine. I have about twenty writers and photographers across the country where we cover music events and releases. I've also been playing the alto saxophone since the 5th grade and have dipped into other instruments here and there. Here at Belmont I am also a Curb College photographer and help out with our showcase series when I can. I love promoting local music here on campus and aspire to be a music publicist, touring photographer, and tour manager at some point in my future. 

Kristoff Hart

Kristoff Hart

I am a senior Music Business major from Memphis, TN. I inherited the gift of gab from my grandfather, William Hart, which basically means I talk a lot, but I try to do so with purpose. Talking has gotten me into organizations such as Bruin Recruiters, Tour Guide, Bear House Writer Management, Dean of Student’s Advisory Council, and as the Undergraduate Manager for the Men’s Basketball Team, to name a few. I also work as a Resident Assistant in an upperclassmen apartment, and started my own marketing company this year! In my free time, I love to write songs, sing and perform, play basketball, watch the Belmont Bruins play, and mess around on social media!

Wes Hight

I am a sophomore Mass Communication major and journalism minor from North Carolina. When I was eight my parents would take me to college football games and I would always tell them that I wanted to be a photographer at the games.  At the age of 15 I launched my own photography business and started shooting college games by the time I was 16.  I then got interested in doing concert photography and videography and had some opportunities open up where I was able to go on tour.  Not only do I love photography but also I love public relations and being active on social media.  Here at Belmont I serve as the Maddox Hall President, a member of SAPB, a member of Belmont Vision, and a member of the awesome Boulevard Team!
