HIRED!

Okay, it's official!

I am finally allowed to make this public -- I'm the new WSU professor of acting! Dr. Converse approached me during tech of Passion, offering me the job. At the time, I had no idea that the professor of acting was even an open position, but it was a complete no-brainer for me...the fact that I'll only have a B.A. by the time I start teaching is an amazing testament to what this department thinks of my abilities. I am really excited about my curriculum and my future students! I just ordered the textbooks yesterday. I still feel like it isn't real!

I won't teach long -- I'm eager to start my acting career. My biggest challenge will be to continue learning over the next year.

I filmed a commercial about 2 years ago, and the director just contacted me. He's filming an industrial video for the horticulture department here at WSU and would like me for the main narration (I'm surprised and excited he remembered me). But he also asked if I knew anyone staying over the summer that might fit for the project as well. This presented the perfect opportunity for project 1 for my acting students!
