What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? There is no program, no school, I have felt more drawn to than MSLCE at Northwestern University. As a school, NU has proven time and time again to be one of the nation’s best institutions at shaping Alumni who go on to, not just be successful in their fields, but become industry leading professionals. It will be both an honor and a privilege to have my name beside all the distinguished individuals who have come before.

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I am very excited for pitching & persuasion, entertainment law & ethics, and economics.

If you could have lunch with one person (living or dead), who would it be? My grandmother Rosemarie, she passed away to Alzheimer’s disease 5 years ago. She is who inspired me to pursue the arts and taught me bravery comes from love. I want the opportunity to thank her over a home cooked meal (one of her recipes preferably).

What award would you most like to win? The Tony for my first independently produced musical

Where are you from? Bemidji, MN
