25th Reunion: Save the date for June 1-4, 2017! * Pete Hayden writes: “I’m the general counsel for the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division. In September we finished a year in Afghanistan and turned the mission over to the 1st Cavalry Division. As I was greeting the incoming attorneys, I learned that their chief of client services was Cpt. Hillary Klug ’05. I should have recognized this exceptionally bright, hard-working, and upbeat young attorney as a fellow alum! I’m heading back to Ft. Drum, N.Y., for the next year. Can’t wait to see everyone at our 25th.” * Heather Belanger, who lives in St. Petersburg, Fla., spoke this fall to a senior seminar in Colby’s Psychology Department about concussion research. “I dined with Ed Yeterian and other faculty. Ed is still the same—high standards balanced by concern for students and a quirky sense of humor. I also had lunch with some Colby students and was shocked to discover a smoothie bar at Roberts. These kids have it made!” [There’s one in Dana too!] * Matt Davie is celebrating 24 years living in NYC. “I wouldn’t have predicted the transition from rural Maine to the urban jungle would have worked, but it’s clicked.” For the past two years, he’s worked as a product director at a social marketing and intelligence startup. “Last August my boyfriend, Ray, and I had a great reunion with Andrew Rhein, his wife, Ali, and their three children who were visiting from Bethesda, Md. Andy hasn’t aged a day since college. He puts his psychology Ph.D. to good use as director of counseling at a private boys school.” * Sarah Poriss owns a solo law practice in Hartford, Conn. “My firm is now the largest foreclosure defense firm in the state. I also write a blog discussing legal issues faced by homeowners in foreclosure and consumers with financial issues; it’s recently been named to the American Bar Association’s top 100 law blogs for the second year in a row.” * Jason Oliver Nixon and his partner, John Loecke, launched their second fabric collection for Robert Allen under their brand Madcap Cottage. They’ve also signed a license with window treatments manufacturer Smith & Noble. The pair’s latest design book, Prints Charming, hits the market in October. * Doug Oppenheimer teaches history, math, and filmmaking and coaches indoor soccer at Garrison Forest School in Baltimore. He won the distinguished teacher award last year. “I’m the head coach for the U-12 Washington Spirit Academy soccer team. We were undefeated in 2016 and competed in the North America Championship Cup last December. This spring I’ll travel to Spain to study at professional soccer academies including Barcelona and Real Madrid. I recently got engaged and added a puppy to our family.” * Daniel Connolly writes from Washington, D.C., “Being a member of Lambda Chi placed me in the ‘tweener’ category for the Classes of ’92 and ’93 because of our semester ‘off.’ In the moment, this felt like the end of the world. Time and perspective have made me realize what a gift this was. I have sincere, dedicated brothers that span the years I spent on Mayflower Hill. Last July we HQed our annual event at The Liberty Hotel in Boston—30+ guys dropping in for events ranging from a Sam Adams Brewery tour courtesy of Alex Chin ’94 and Rick Catino ’95 to a party bus crawling through Boston with Chuck DiGrande, Bill Higgins, Mark Lombard, Dave Sullivan, Tim Sullivan, Kevin Darling ’93, and Mitch Rogers ’93. We ended the weekend with Pearl Jam in Fenway Park with Greg Burns ’93, James Colligan ’95, Eric DeCosta ’93, and Gregg Suffredini ’93. It was a brilliantly exhausting weekend with lifelong friends. * August Bradley Cenname writes from Los Angeles: “After years running the creative agency and production company I founded, GLASS Media Lab, I’ve accepted an exciting offer to be COO/CMO of leading virtual reality creative studio Kite & Lightning. We create premium computer-generated worlds and immersive experiences in VR. I’ve been traveling a lot doing speaking appearances about emerging technologies.” * In October I rendezvoused with Amy Selinger, Anne Maddocks Michels, Elaine Bueschen O’Grady, Kristen Wallace Livezey, Lyz Makely Best, Meg Ewing Weiss, and Sura DuBow Lennon in Nashville. Yee haw! “Nashvegas” delivered. We got our fill of live country music, bowling, denim, and cowboy boots—and even scored a run-in with Lynda Carter, aka Wonder Woman. Can’t wait for June!
