Senior TIMARA major Oli Bentley will kick off the new year with a new gig! Bentley recently landed a part time internship with the audio plugin company Bentley will be assisting with marketing, social media, and day-to-day operations as she wraps up her final semester at Oberlin this spring. In addition to being a full time student, Bentley has worn many different hats and held numerous campus jobs during her time at Oberlin. She has worked as a departmental studio, teaching, and research assistant, and has also worked for conservatory communications. Bentley’s campus gigs have made use of her extensive experience in music technology and also her infamous design skills: Bentley was the artist behind the program cover for the 2019 Kaleidosonic Music Festival, and has assisted with multiple projects before and since. 

Oli is such a talented, multifaceted artist and we are so lucky to have her in our department, said TIMARA Technical Director, Abby Aresty. I have no doubt that the good folks at McDSP will be very pleased with Oli’s talent, skill, and dedication.

For her part, Bentley is looking forward to tackling this next adventure: I am really excited to be interning with McDSP. It is very lucky to have the opportunity to work with a company that I am so interested in, and I can’t wait to get started! I’m so thankful for everything that I have learned here in TIMARA, I wouldn’t be starting this job without it.
