    Profile
    Michelle Ohumukini is an Adjunct Professor at Brigham Young University. Being Hawaiian has helped her gain experience in events from a young age. Once she was old enough to choose, she decided to dive into finding out more about sound and how it functions. Attending the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences began her sound career.

    Since then, she’s completed her Associates through the Salt Lake Community College, her Bachelor of Arts from Brigham Young University, and finally her terminal degree from Purdue University. Her MFA is in Sound for the Performing Arts with an emphasis on Engineering.

    Michelle has designed over 32 theatrical shows from Utah to Indiana, toured all over the United States and Central America, worked with touring groups from Olivia Newton John to Pentatonix, and has worked many local performances in three different states.

    She currently serves on the Sound Commission of the United States Institute of Theater Technology (USITT) and is a member of Theatrical Sound Designers and Composers Association (TSDCA). Most recently she has been working at Hale Center Theatre running shows including Matilda, Cinderella, Mary Poppins, and An American in Paris, as well as designing Escape From Planet Death for BYU
