How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life
Evergreen taught me that if I wanted something done, I'd better learn how to do it myself. Once, while learning how to shoot video, I dumped a TV monitor onto the sidewalk outside the Mods. Crash! I had to pay for a new one--ouch. But someone at Media Loan helped arrange payments, and hired me to work off a part of the debt. I learned to be more careful with the equipment--and I learned I could get help when I needed it. I learned I could make life-long friends with my teachers—hey there, Rudy Martin!—and fellow students: ditto, Steve Blakeslee. I learned that no matter where I go, no matter what I do, I'll always have a piece of Evergreen's heart in my heart, helping to show me the way. Thanks, Evergreen.
