Where are you from and what brought you here to the DLMA?

I’m from Minneapolis in Minnesota, only six hours north of Fairfeld, Iowa. I have family who live in various parts of Iowa, but none of them had ever heard of Fairfield. I heard about the DLMA program through a friend who stumbled upon the blog for the scholarship contest, and the cosmos took care of the rest. I completed my BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1999, it had been a while since I was last enrolled in school, but now...

Where are you from and what brought you here to the David Lynch MA?

I am from a very politicized region on the border of Mexico in the US, El Paso, Texas. I was attracted here by some the energy and desire to create great art, and this place allows me that freedom. I’m glad to be in Fairfield, Iowa.

How are you liking the MA program?

The program had a successful first semester in my opinion, bringing great teachers who inspired and pushed us to our...

Where are you from and what brought you here to the David Lynch MA?

In November 2009, I journeyed from St. Louis, MO to Fairfield, IA to attend MUM’s annual David Lynch Visitors Weekend. On the first night of the event, my family and I wound up sitting in the front row next to David Lynch and Donovan (shown left). I was 18 years old at the time and was a huge fan of David Lynch, so getting to meet him was a thrill. At the time,...

Where are you from and what brought you here to the David Lynch MA?

I’m from Washington, DC and my love of David Lynch  and photography brought me to the David Lynch MA in film. I love film. I love images. I adore storytelling. I like the MA program and the practice of TM meditation. I went to the famous arts high school: Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC where I received professional arts training and various internships that help shape my drive. Then I got my Bachelors of Arts in Photography from Columbia College...

How are you liking the MA program?

I am loving the DLMA program. First and foremost I came to grow on a personal level, through meditation, through consciousness and through my creativity. That’s been the best aspect of this program because I’ve transformed into more of me and more of who I’m meant to be. Being in a program where David Lynch is the mentor is a dream come true because he’s influenced me so much personally and professionally. David Lynch introduced me to Transcendental Meditation and I...

Where are you from and what brought you here to the David Lynch MA in film program?

I’m a Brazilian filmmaker and I came here because I was looking for a desert island in order to create. A place where I could be 100% connected to myself while developing my film project. Here, I would be far from my land and I’d would use David Lynch’s techniques to dive into deep waters in ourselves to search for what I was going to write about. I won an award from my...
