Collegiate competitive rowing, or crew, as it is commonly referred to, is a sport steeped in tradition and legacy. It is financially prohibitive – a single boat can cost as much as $35,000 – and geographically limited as well – a nearby body of water of suitable size and temperament is a vital prerequisite. But when Dhir Desai began asking around DePaul – a school with both the wealth and water to support a crew team – how to get involved in competitive rowing, he was surprised that nothing of the sort existed.
“Everyone in Chicago had been wanting DePaul to have a rowing team, but no one had stepped up yet,” Desai explained. “So I said, ‘Fine, I’ll do it.’”

Some people make choosing a career look easy. Maybe when they were kids, they were diligent managers of a neighborhood lemonade stand, serving sugary yellow liquid to the quarter-laden masses every day for five summers. These kids grow up to be MBAs or entrepreneurs. Some bright children spend every waking moment devising contraptions out of any material at hand – Lego blocks, duct tape, cardboard tubes – simply for their own amusement. They are now the civil engineers and architects of the world.
Some, like Joanna McCall, now 20, just liked to smash things.
In June of 2013 I was hired to take photos for graduating DePaul music student Carl Kennedy’s senior recital. Here are the some of the photos I took.
In my spare time I play the guitar and make little drum loops in Pro Tools. Here are a few of them.
‘Debt’ is a short film I co-wrote for my cinematography class at DePaul. I also did location sound and sound mixing/editing for it. The assignment was to use our knowledge of composition, lighting and screenwriting to create a short noir-style film.
This is a photo slideshow of members of DePaul’s jazz program, with interviews from a select number of students. This project was made for class in March 2013.
This is the first short film I made as part of my Digital Cinema coursework at DePaul. It was written, directed and edited by myself. It stars Tyler Esselman and Noah Laufer, also DePaul students at The Theatre School.
