I was a student of Melba's for three years at St. Edwards University in Austin, TX, and an actor under her direction in many productions there at Mary Moody Northen Theater. I count Melba as one of the few key mentors that profoundly influenced my direction and trajectory as an artist. Melba is an expert at identifying and fostering collaborative relationships. The creative family she brought me into at St. Edwards continues to thrive together more than ten years after. We're all still doing what we set out to do at St. Edwards, in one way or another, and I know we all draw from Melba's many lessons and inspirations regularly.

Mr. Burford has been my acting coach since 2009. He has helped me prepare monologues for everything ranging from class rehearsals to monologue competitions to auditions for college theatre programs. He has without question been the most influential person in my deciding to pursue acting in college; his enthusiasm for acting and theatre in general is nothing short of contagious. And should I ever need help in the future, I will not hesitate to contact him. It could be 3 months or 3 years and he would offer advice or help me choose the right piece as if he was still my teacher. I highly recommend him.
