Since Emory

Law School … that’s about it

Current activities

I’ve been doing a lot of writing since graduation, have copyrighted some, and hope to continue copyrighting others. Right now it seems that school has taken up most of my time, but whenever I can, I try to take in a good movie, or play a video game. I’ve also been filming a few short movies with friends and family.

Highlights at Emory

Being Emperor of Rathskellar, President of APO, and Treasurer for SAP; taking Movement for the Actor and Intro to Acting; playing Will Parker in Oklahoma, Ed in You Can’t Take it With You, and Don in The Universal Language

In retrospect

I’ve learned to take advantage of opportunities to be creative. When you’re a kid you don’t think that there will ever be a day when you won’t have the time to play Power Rangers, or build Lego cities, or tape mini-videos with your action figures. However, as you get older those opportunities don’t just come out and present themselves as often. A lot of times you have to make those opportunities yourself. Sometimes you just have to set up your video camera and make a little cooking show … sometimes. But most importantly, find time to play pretend. Try out for a play, audition for Rathskellar. Do something where you’re forced to build a set, or learn an instrument. Once you graduate it might get harder to find these opportunities, so take advantage of them now while you’re around such a great family and community as Theater at Emory.

And…

Don’t sweat the petty things, and don’t pet the sweaty things!
