Where did you go to school?I went to DePaul’s Theatre School for undergrad and Northwestern University for grad school.
What were your majors/minors in undergrad?At The Theatre School I majored in costume design. I liked that it combined my interest in art and design with research and craft and it allowed me to work collaboratively.
Favorite class in college?In my last year at DePaul I took a class on Diaspora Studies with Maria de los Angeles Torres that really changed the way I thought about art and academics and the divisions between disciplines. It was really liberating. Since then I’ve been less worried about whether I am an artist or academic or ________. I can be all of them.
If you weren’t an academic advisor, what would you be doing?I’d be at home baking a cake.
Three favorite things?The writing of Virginia Woolf, hikes in beautiful places (the American Southwest, Iceland, England!), and mozzarella sticks.
