"Oh my god... he was just wonderful and the students all loved him. And I know they learned a lot from both the workshops and the masterclass. So thank you again for everything your office did on your end to make this happen!"- Emerson College
"Graham was superb. He didn't just tell war stories but really helped students understand the importance of working and how the work gets done. He has great values--focus on the work, make something meaningful, keep some control over the creative process--that he communicated to the students. He was warm and kind -- everything we hoped for.
