Working with this supervisor

Choosing a graduate supervisor is one of the most important decisions we make. I made great choices, and they are the foundation of all that is good in my work. I wish you the same good fortune. When making your decision, there are two reasons you might want to work with me: 1) You share my belief that dedicating yourself to the exploration of ideas is a good thing to do with your life; and, 2) You determine that I am the type of person with whom you can work well. PLEASE NOTE: I am not currently accepting inquiries for students interested in the Drama MFA program.
