TECHnically Speaking: USITT22 Series with YDMT Winner Cam Camden

July 29, 2022

This podcast was recorded on the show floor of USITT22 at Studio USITT in partnership with AKG by Harman.

On this week’s episode, we sat down with 2022 YDMT winner of the KM Fabrics Technical production Award, Cam Camden.

At the time of recording, Cam was a fourth-year MFA Candidate in the Technical Design & Production Program at the newly renamed David Geffen School of Drama at Yale. Cam graduated this past spring.

Cam is originally from Michigan and holds a BA in Theatre Arts with a focus in Technical Direction from the University of Miami. While there, Cam worked at several summer stock companies including the Ohio Light Opera and Potsdam Music Theatre. After graduating, he moved to New York to spend a year working as the Technical Direction Apprentice at The Juilliard School. Afterwards, Cam moved back to his hometown to work as an Associate TD at the performing arts conservatory within Detroit Country Day School. Through that job, he solidified his passion for education which led him to pursue his Master’s Degree. Cam is the co-chair of the School of Drama Student Government where he hopes to help represent and advocate for the study body as a whole. Outside of school and theatre, Cam enjoys cooking, tending to his many houseplants, hanging out with his cat, Mac, and being a proud member of the trans community.
