Memories of Theater and Emory: "If memory serves I was the first declared Theater major at Emory way back in 1986 or so when the major was first begun. Highlights would be The Mysteries, all Ad Hoc productions, and working with so many talented people. What did I take away? Patience (which I still lack), ability to competently function on little to no sleep, and the importance of working together towards a common goal. My years at Emory were a wonderful time that I now wish I had taken even greater advantage of. Too much went by untasted and that is a constant regret. I acknowledge the debt I owe to the road I took to get where I am today, and Emory--and the people I met there--is a vital part of that road."
