Kevin Santopadre is a senior from McHenry, Illinois with a double major in Media Arts Production and Sports Journalism. He is very excited to complete his final semester and graduate in just three years. After graduation, Santopadre plans to embark on a 5-month hike along the historic Pacific Crest Trail. This adventure has inspired him to create his Made in Millersville project. Santopadre is excited to begin a new chapter of his life after college by spending time alone in the wilderness, filming his experience, and eventually sharing it with others. He is extremely passionate about being active and outdoors, as well as building on his production knowledge, and creating a documentary for all to enjoy.
