Cameron Garrity earned a bachelor of fine arts in graphic design with a theater minor from Daemen College. He currently works as the creative media developer for the Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, where he designs a wide variety of digital and print materials to help facilitate stewardship. He previously directed communications for Upon This Rock, the diocesan $100 million capital and endowment campaign.
Garrity is also a puppeteer and has performed throughout the country in live venues, short films, and national commercial projects. In 2017, he and his business partner, Adam Kreutinger, founded Puppet Tears: Puppetry Shop Talk, a long-form interview podcast series, where they discuss their craft with the industry’s biggest names. Guests have included Terry Fator, winner of “America’s Got Talent,” Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, who performs Abby Cadabby on “Sesame Street,” and Bill Baretta, who has inherited many of Jim Henson’s legacy characters, including Rowlf the Dog, Dr. Teeth, and the Swedish Chef.
At Daemen, Garrity was highly involved in the Honors Program, serving as a Governing Board member and president, and traveling to national and regional conferences as a college student.
“The Honors Program was definitely a highlight at Daemen for me,” said Garrity. “It provided so many opportunities as a student and laid the foundation for a successful career after graduation. I’m forever grateful for my experiences with the program.”
