Well, I hate my job, I hate my life, I hate this city. I feel like I’ve got my period every day and so far this drug dealing thing as been…hmm…been a big mistake. But I got a great recipe for ratatouille.
In a world where I can communicate to hundreds of people in one day without opening my mouth—what is the future of stage dialogue? I hope that long form live theater will return us to the richness of human stories that get lost in the tweets.

My final senior thesis project/creative portfolio of the plays and screenplays I’ve written over the past year at Rice. This project really started when I got the idea for my first full-length play at the end of my junior year of high school. I couldn’t have predicted it then, but I can now say that I am a playwright.
I also finished the last paper of my undergraduate career last night. Once I turn it in, I’ll be finished with all my coursework. These are small thresholds, leading up to the big one on May 11th when I walk back out of the Sallyport and officially graduate from Rice.
I’m going to have plenty of time to miss Rice, to be sad about leaving my friends and mentors for the next phase. For now, I’m proud of what I created here and how everything I’ve learned at Rice is going to continue to inspire and motivate me. Thanks. Rice Owl for life.
Still shot from the cartoon I wrote, Balloons (voiced, animated, and brought to life by Dr. Judith Roof, my advisor and the current Chair of the English Department at Rice University).
It’s premiering tomorrow at the Senior Thesis Presentation from 4-5:30 p.m. in the English Lounge in Herring Hall. The full cartoon will be ready later this summer, but I’d love to share it with everyone as I celebrate the work I’ve done this year and my previous three years at Rice.
