David Bello, Creative Media & Videography Intern
B.A Communication Arts ‘21
Born in the Bronx, NY and raised in Boston, MA, David is a photographer and filmmaker that loves people. His general interest in media started to develop in high school after taking classes on film photography and animation at MassArt.

Currently, David is part of the Clarendon Honors Scholar Program at Gordon, an Apartment Coordinator in Tavilla Hall, works at Allston Pudding as a freelance concert photographer, has been working on filming more personal videos for his youtube channel and more. If he’s not on campus or back home, there’s a good chance that he’s either in New York City visiting his family and his girlfriend or venturing out to try a new place to eat.
