Reunion is right around the corner—those five years have flown by! Looking forward to seeing all of you on Mayflower Hill June 2-4, 2017. * Hannah DeAngelis and Aleah Starr ’11 got married in Readfield, Maine, last August. They were surrounded by friends from the Classes of ’10, ’11, ’12, and ’13, who also generously spent their time, energy, and love to help build the venue from the ground up. * Nathan Katsiaficas has taken a job as a geologist with a Maine environmental firm, Woodard & Curran. He hopes to see many Class of 2012 Colby friends in 2017. *Joe Albano and Chessy Breene moved back to Boston from Washington, D.C. Chessy graduated from Georgetown in May 2016 with an M.A. in strategic marketing communications then joined World Relief as a product development specialist. The role takes her all over the world to document product strengths and interview program beneficiaries for donor communications. Most recently, she was in Rwanda and the Congo and will travel to Jordan and Iraq in 2017. Joe graduated from Georgetown Law magna cum laude in May 2016 and was sworn into the Massachusetts bar. He works as a first-year associate at Proskauer Rose, LLP in the private credit group. Joe and Chessy will marry June 3. * Last year was a busy one for Trip Venturella: he finished work on two theater spaces in Boston and began an M.F.A. program in playwriting at Ohio University. * Chelsea Sonksen released issue 02 of her new independent magazine, Bossladies. Tajreen Hedayet ’11 photographed the launch party, and Leigh Bullion ’10 and Jenna Gundersen helped with the final round of edits. * Petey Randall took a break from the LA music world to DJ Jenny Stephens and Gordon Lessersohn’s epic wedding in Portland. Last holiday season he was DJ’ing in NY with two members of the original “Staffcurity,” Brandon Nieuw and Matt Boyes-Watson. * Evan O’Neill started a new job at Jana, a mobile advertising company focused on bringing free Internet to emerging markets. He has plans to travel to Santa Monica in 2017 for an ultimate Frisbee tournament with Will Bloomhardt, David Furman, and Matt Burton ’14. * Andrew Estrada departed the U.S. DOT to serve as North Carolina press secretary for Hillary for America. He had the time of his life acquainting himself with the many wonderful features of the Tar Heel State (though he was hoping for a different outcome). * Caitlin Burchill moved across the country to continue growing as a journalist. She now works as the morning reporter at KSL, an NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City. Before leaving Bangor, Maine, some of her former volleyball teammates—Kate Pleasants ’14, Anna Clifford ’14, Anne Sewall, Ellie Linden ’14, and Emily Varni ’13—helped her cross off a big Maine bucket list item: climbing Mt. Katahdin. * Ben Grimmig and Aileen Evans are happy to share that they recently got engaged in Washington, D.C. They’re both finishing up their master’s programs and are planning a wedding for 2018. * Maddie Purcell started a cooking-competition company, Fyood Kitchen, that puts on Iron Chef-meets-Paint Nite events for date nights, parties, or team-building activities. Following the Kickstarter campaign, they planned to open to the public in Portland, Maine, and eventually expand to five other cities by the end of 2017. She enjoyed playing on ultimate Frisbee teams with many friends last summer: Jen Beatty, Julie Kafka, Lewis Seton ’09, Ross Nehrt ’10, and Henry Powell ’09.
