Brotherhood Bios

Julian Baeza Hochmuth (2017)
Pledge Class: Fall 2013
This Sound Design and Audio Post Production Major splits his time between producing and releasing electronic music under the name Beeza and working as a freelance sound designer. Before arriving at Emerson, Julian had created sound design pieces for feature length movie trailers like The Call, White House Down, Only God Forgives, and, most notably, Pacific Rim. . Having this portfolio going in to college was part of what attracted him to Phi Alpha Tau. He wanted to be connected with like-minded, professionals who could help him succeed. Less than a week after the pledge process ended, he was already getting offers for projects and sound collaborations with members of the active brotherhood. For Julian, that was part of the point of joining Tau; getting connected with people who could use his unique skill set and challenge him. The end goal for Julian is doing sound design and scoring for film.

Tyler Breen (2017)
Pledge Class: Fall 2014
WLP Major — Enjoys the longevity the Boston winters provide for artistic brooding and acceptable introversion. Likes to read good books, hopes to write one or two. Phi Alpha Tau was from an outside perspective and remains still a sharpened tool for self-growth & goal-orientation, future-thinking, and is a sustainable environment for positive and creative thinkers. Ultimately, however, in Tyler’s mind Phi Alpha Tau is the door to unlocking the professional in the individual, and once the door to professionalism has been unlocked, success in relation to both work and life is obtainable and entirely within the hands of the individual.

Jackson Davis (2017)
Pledge Class: Fall 2013
This B.A. Film major is a proud member of the Fall 2013 Pledge Class of Phi Alpha Tau. Joining as a first-semester Freshman, Tau was one of the first organizations he joined, though he plans on getting much more involved in various organizations across Emerson College throughout the next four years here. Jackson grew up in New York, where he was heavily involved in the drama and film programs at his high school. When asked what he plans on doing with his career after Emerson, he likes to say that he has no idea but he can’t wait to find out. He knows that whatever he chooses to do, Tau will guide him every step of the way.

Tau has already benefited him by giving me life-long friends in such a short period of time already. It also has given him a sense of what kind of self-conduct and the amount of work necessary for success.
