Following the move from city to city and graduating from the University of Akron, Antonia Villalon found a home in the unlikely city of Madison, Wisconsin with her partner of over four years. Once settled in the capital of Wisconsin the new Madison residential duo helped two rascally rescue puppies, Daisy and Ralph, find their fur-ever homes, thus starting the embarkment of brand new adventures.
Villalon has a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies of the Fine and Applied Arts with a focus in theater, media production and music. After receiving her BA she studied acting with Jessica Houde-Morris at The Houde School of Acting followed by nine months in Los Angeles, studying with Robert Carnegie at Playhouse West. Once she planted roots in Wisconsin she decided to go back to school for a Journalism Certificate at Madison College.
Prior to completing the certificate program in May of 2016 Villalon interned with Communication & Strategic Marketing at Madison College as a co-editor for their faculty and staff online newsletter, Matters, and worked as the broadcast editor and contributing staff writer for the school paper, The Clarion.
When not looking to broaden her education Villalon works part-time at Madison City Channel as a production assistant and assistant director, and works full-time as the Promotions Coordinator – peppered with production work – at Wisconsin’s 57. Villalon also freelances as an actor/voice-over actor, most recently performing in a production of Clybourne Park and frequently performs in Madison’s Dinner Detective show.
In Villalon’s sparse down-time she likes to spend time with her partner, hang out with family, attempt DIY projects/crafts, paint, play with her puppies and is slowly working on getting back into running, yoga and music.
So, boredom is clearly never an issue.
