Best of 2010: My “Top 21” Penn Posts


As we come to the close of 2010 and the celebration of DT’s 4th birthday, I wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate this past year with my top 21 posts (yes, another year I managed to arrive at 21 posts and couldn’t seem to get it down to 20).

If I were to sum up this year, I would say there is now a legitimate Hollywood Penn alumni force to be reckoned with.  Further, in 2010, I saw that more and more alumni are taking their careers into their own hands, making career changes and taking chances becoming authors, filmmakers, actors, Producers, and overall entrepreneurs.   I hope these stories have been as inspiring for you as they have been for me.

As we go into year 4, be sure keep up with DT by liking our Facebook fan page or getting our newsletter because in 2011, I have all sorts of new surprises including new columnists, contests and job opportunities to name a few.

Enjoy these 2010 “top 21” DT favorites of mine:
