Keegan Konsor is a fine young man. He studies communication, music, and theatre arts here at the University of Iowa. Academia isn't all he's got, though! Keegan is also a solo musician with multiple songs released on several streaming platforms. He works in sound design in multiple forms and dibble dabbles in video production. Not to mention, he's captain of the improv team, The Paperback Rhinos! In his free time, he likes to listen to old records, meditate, talk about his feelings, jog (slowly), and eat food that's hopefully good for him. Thanks for your time!
