Richard and Emily (Smith '99) met at Columbia University in the Fall of 1999, when they were cast in Barnard-Columbia Music Theater's production of Into the Woods. They have been together almost six years, and spend every moment they can with each other.
When Richard graduated in 2001, he and Emily moved to Illinois to attend classes at the University of Chicago. Emily earned her J.D. in June 2004, and is now a practicing attorney in the labor division of Morgan Lewis in Los Angeles. Richard moved out to L.A. in December, and is continuing to work on his Ph.D. in music theory.
