My name is Bailey Coronis and ever since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated by stories. No matter the medium, I found that these stories not only fascinated me but immediately gave me the drive to want to tell stories of my own. I could be found scribbling ideas into a notebook at any hour of the day and this passion has followed me into my collegiate career.

I am currently working towards achieving a BAJMC in Digital Media Production and a BFA in Acting at Drake University. I’m passionate about telling stories through the lens of a camera, as well as through writing, social media and design.

Throughout the past three years, I’ve also fallen in love with the world of television production. The summer before I began my first-year at Drake, I lived in Los Angeles California working as a Production Assistant on the inaugural season of Top Chef Junior. My career in production continued last summer when I was an Intern for Twin Cities PBS. My team and I worked on the upcoming children’s television show, Hero Elementary, which will premiere in June of 2020.

At Drake, I try to stay involved in as many ways as I can. I currently write for Drake Magazine and The Times-Delphic. I am a fitness instructor who teaches hip-hop dance style classes (I’m just as surprised as you are) at GroupX Fitness in the Bell Center. I am also the communications chair and a member of Drake’s only co-ed acapella group, Fermata the Blue.

Originally, I hail from Saint Paul, MN. I love popular culture and spend far too much time reviewing albums and finding new music. I am very much in love with my three golden retrievers; Bella, Finn and Zeke. I also love being outside whether I’m journaling, hiking or lying by the lake.
