Executive Producers

KVIK shows are completely run by student volunteers; both an Executive and Assistant Executive Producer per show. Scroll down for bios from the 2013-2014 roster!



Tristan Olson- Executive Producer

Hi my name is Tristan Olson and I’ll be this year’s Executive Producer for KVIK’s music show The Mix! I hail from Olympia, Washington a mere 3 hours south of Bellingham and am in my third year here at Western! I’ve been involved with film for almost three years now and this will be my second year working with KVIK. Besides film I am studying as an English Creative Writing major, I enjoy swimming and hiking, I sing in a duet, and I have even been known to frequent trampoline zone. I love to direct, write, film, act, edit, and do pretty much anything related to video production! So let’s go film some music and make this year’s show the best it can be!

Tommy Heffernan - Executive Producer

Tommy Heffernan

Tommy Heffernan is the Assistant Executive Producer of You Would! and has been dabbling in all aspects of making videos since high school. He aims to involve himself in KVIK through writing, directing, producing, editing, and reluctantly, acting, whenever the situation calls for it. He hopes to remain an active filmmaker after school, whether that'll entail anything from moving to LA or to just making movies with friends whenever he can. Tommy will also admit he knows the Double Dream Hands dance and is tagged in several embarrassing Facebook photos decked out in drag.



Neal Dickinson - Executive Producer


Penelope Kipps -  Executive Producer 

 The first thing Penelope did when she started at Western was join KVIK. Ever since, she's worked her way up, learned anything and everything she can, and really fine tuned her film skills. Her passions in film mainly involve the directing aspect, although she's basically up for anything. Her dream in the future is to own a flock of sheep, live in the mountains, and create films from time to time.

SHOW! The Show


Summer Storholt - Co-Executive Producer

 Hello! I'm Summer Storholt and I'm the Executive Producer for Western's Sketch Comedy Club, "Show! The Show!" I'm a Senior at Western majoring in Theatre and minoring in Psychology and History. I love comedy, improv, stand-up, writing sketches and scripts, sleeping, drinking coffee and reading plays. I love my German Shepherd dog Jack and I'm taking care to survive on this planet until all the Marvel movies are out. Let's eat some cereal sometime and talk about why things are funny!
