8. Anything else you’d like to share about your life or life at the Red Barn?
The Barn, the Hendersons and the dear friends from that generation were and continue to be a significant influence in my life. I worked in the film industry for Lucasfilm and Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, help start the first school for the arts west of the Mississippi and spent 14 years at Interlochen Center the Arts before heading to IU. I believe any level of success or failure one experiences in life, is directly related to the friends and colleagues that help influence their decisions. I am grateful for the ageless arms of that old barn.
