Presenter Bio:

Aaron Kubey

Aaron Kubey

I moved to Washington, DC in 2011. Prior to moving to DC, I was the first Deaf and youngest Executive Director of the National Theatre of the Deaf (NTD) from 2007 to 2011.  Prior to becoming the executive Director of NTD, I had worked at several prestigious law firms in Chicago and New York City.

I have had the opportunity of working on numerous television, film and theatrical productions over the course of my professional career.  I am fortunate to have the opportunity to interpret Jersey Boys several times and am thankful for those memorable experiences!  Oh!  What a night!  I also have been fortunate to have interpreted at the Kennedy Center, as well as other theaters around the country.  I also travel to present my theatre interpreting workshops (Spoken English to ASL and ASL to Spoken English).

I am a 1994 graduate of the Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD) at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. In 2006, I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Theatre Studies from the Theatre School, DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.  A proud native of Chicago and avid Cubs fan (GO CUBBIES!, I was the first Deaf admitted student and graduate from this prestigious institution.
