Anne McGrail '87
Writer and Producer, CSI
At Emmanuel, I learned a worldwide perspective, which has proven helpful in my job as a television writer-producer. When I first came to Emmanuel I felt as if I knew little about the outside world. When I left the College, however, I had a much stronger sense of the world around me and had the courage to go after what I wanted.
As a TV writer-producer, I've written and produced shows such as "CSI:NY," "CSI:Miami" and "Boomtown." Currently I'm working on a pilot about growing up in South Boston. I love what I do because I'm the boss, or one of the bosses, of every show I'm on. When I write an episode, I cast it, pick out wardrobe, choose locations, music, sound effects, etc. And then I get to see all my hard work on TV in just a matter of months!
