Commonly Asked Questions

What are you doing at Flint Hill?

Let's start at the beginning. I graduated from Flint Hill last year and am taking a year off before I go to college. I am traveling, working, etc. throughout the year. I just finished up an internship in Washington, D.C. and am off to India soon -- in the interim, I am working at Flint Hill. I am an intern for Ms. Deveneau and an "apprentice" of sorts for Ms. Cardone (helping her plan the Empty Bowls fundraiser which will take place on February 11th). No, I am not repeating senior year. But do not be surprised if I pop into one of your classes and pretend to be a student.

Is that really snow in your music video?

Yes, it is. When it started snowing yesterday, my first thought was to make a music video (my second was to make an igloo). I am not technologically aware enough to use a greenscreen or any such device, so you can be assured that I froze my behind off for the shooting. I apologize for the background noise (more proof that I'm outside -- I live off of the highway) but I was happy enough with the quality that I opted not to redub it. There is not a piano in my backyard -- I moved the speakers very close to the door.
