Alumni Connections

Some of you may be aware that I have been working on contacting Alumni. Why? To bring us all together somehow, of course. It would be awesome to find everyone, but right now I have 500 names and I am trying to put email addresses to them. I am more-or-less, through the “a”s. Baby steps. I am hoping to publish a “newsletter” by July 15th and make first contact on June 29th. Those are the goals!


So, there is a lot that has changed in this last year. Covid-19, BLM, faculty changes, staff changes….to name a few. There is a lot that will need to be “re-built.” I am going to start with re-doing my website and my Canvas pages for my classes. My hope is that there will be a lot more useful content for students and my friends to see what’s happening…

I am also working on contacting more alumni and connecting as many of them as possible. I think this is essential and helpful to our graduates and I hopefully everyone will agree with that!

Love Portland

Jen and I got engaged here and I loved the city when we were here and it hasn’t lost its charm. Happy to be here for these two weeks, but sure do miss my family.

Seattle Load-in

One of the awesome things about the Seattle Paramount is that the seating can disappear and the floor become somewhat flat. This makes for an easier load-in. Literally we hang the balcony rail with a Genie Lift…!! This is a pic of the seats half-way restored!

It was a rough load in. But we did it. Lots of little issues. Most resolved. We have an artistic license box issue. An annoying box. There is a lot to do preparing for STL fox!

Yesterday, I found a broken scroller (on of the ones bought over the summer) placed with all the working scrollers in the shop. This has solidified a belief that has been building. Our students need to fix more stuff. You need confidence, a sense of responsibility and practice. I know wee can do better, so we will.
