Looking back, what faculty member or course was the most influential to you and why?
The Producing Engineering Program courses with Tom Rogers, who laid down the theoretical basis for the knowledge I was to build upon once out in the field.

Any additional comments?
Having Megan Bonnell’s single Separate Rooms reach number one this year was a proud moment. Being voted NOW Magazine’s Producer of the Year in 2013 was cool, too.
