Influential Professors or Classes:

Each of my professors at UT taught me something that I've carried with me into the 'real world,' so it's really tough to single one out…I'd have to say that the Cohen New Works Festival and the collaboration between the playwriting and acting programs were fantastic components of the training, as they allowed us to workshop material and experiment together. And Fran and Lucien put together a superb showcase for us at the end of our tenure - it really helped to launch us into the city.
