Graduation Day!

Today I graduate from Brown/Trinity Rep with an MFA in Directing. What a special day this is because in addition to graduating from this fantastic three year program, today I'm the Symbolic Degree Recipient for all of the 2010 graduating Masters at Brown, which is such a terrific honor. And to top it all's my birthday! 


Today will be a wonderful, special, magical day, full of fabulous classmates, my awesome family and my lovely, lovely friends! Joy, unspeakable Joy! 


Blood Knot: Closing

Yesterday was the last performance of Blood Knot. It was such a successful event. I feel so satisfied with the experience and I'm very proud of my BK team; actors Brandon Drea and Terrell Donnell Sledge and Stage Manager Garrett Holtz. It's an experience I will treasure for a long long time to come. I hope to interact with this play again in the future. Thank you to everyone who came to support. 

Okay...on to the next!!!


Graduation News!

Okay. I just found out some great news leading up to Graduation. I have been nominated and chosen for a Commencement Honor. I will be representing all Master's students at the University ceremony. This is what is called being a symbolic degree candidate. The Brown Graduate School sends one Ph.d. student and one Master's student to the ceremony. Both are acknowledged on the platform in front of the president of the university, Corporation members and a sea of students and family members. I'm touched and honored because I was submitted to a nomination process, and I was selected. 

When applying to the program three years ago, I would have never imagined such a distinction and it's a pleasure to represent the Master's students and my colleagues.
