Where did you go to school?
DePaul’s Theatre School as an undergraduate and Northwestern University for grad school.
What were your majors/minors in undergrad?
At The Theatre School I studied costume design. I liked that it combined my interest in design with research and academic work.
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. It was brilliant. Since then I’ve been less worried about whether I am an artist or academic or ________. I am all of them.
If you weren’t an academic advisor, what would you be doing?
I’d be at home baking a cake.
Three things you would take with you on a deserted island?
A kitchen, my husband and Friday Night Lights.
