I've only been in Boston for a year, so there are plenty of things I haven't experienced yet. Something I've always wanted to do is see a performance at the Boston Ballet. Student rush tickets are available with a BU ID card before each performance (only $25). Their most popular ballet is probably The Nutcracker, and I will definitely be there this Christmas!

I didn't decide on BU until April of my senior year in high school. I applied on a whim just days before the application deadline, because I'd applied to other colleges in Boston and heard it was a great place to spend my undergraduate years. I thought I had decided on a different school in Boston, but when I visited, I realized it wasn't a good match. I was completely worried at first, but when I visited BU the next day, I knew it was a perfect fit. I came to a COM open house and felt more welcomed by the students and administrators than I had at any other university. I fell in love with the program and with this campus, and I knew I had to be a part of it.

So this is me, my wife, and my two kids at BU Commencement last year (walking down Comm Ave). My daughter Charlotte (who is on the left) was 3 weeks old when I started the PhD, so that's what a doctoral degree looks like if it was a person. I just love the smile on Ethan's face as he looks over my shoulder.

I love to sing and play folk music, especially Irish folk music. I started in college (one of my college jobs was playing out with an Irish folk band) but now I mostly play with and for my family. This is a picture of my daughter and I at an open mic last spring. We sang her favorite tune: Ripple by the Grateful Dead.

The Google Hangout with myself and Caitlin Berlo from CAS advising begins in 15 minutes. You can join at 3 PM EST by clicking the link below. Hope to see you guys there!

Personally I always knew I wanted to go to college in Boston (for whatever reason I've known that since I was like 10). I visited Boston my senior year of high school initially thinking I wanted to attend Northeastern, but I toured the school and really didn't see myself there. On a whim I scheduled a tour of BU and immediately could see myself on the campus. After researching BU/College of Communication/BU's film and television program, I knew it was the school for me and applied early decision!

Hello everyone! There will be a google hangout at 3 PM EST with Caitlin Berlo and myself. Caitlin Berlo is the graduation advisor for the College of Arts and Sciences so she's a great person to ask any academic questions to! I will post a link to the hangout here closer to 3 PM, hope to see you guys then!
