Caleb Cooks hails from Brooklyn, where he’s directing an ad campaign for AT&T and the NEA Foundation on the subject of STEM in public schools (the current presidential administration’s acronym for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). * Doug Morrione also works in film, but he’s taking his show on the road: “After several years cooped up in various edit rooms and studios, I’m heading out west for the summer and fall to shoot and direct a documentary on cowboys and the western arts.” Watch the trailer and follow his progress at: lopin-ropin-hopin.com. * Carrie Smith Woodruff still teaches Spanish at Brookwood School in Manchester. This spring break she received a grant to go to Guatemala with husband Tom and their children, Jack, 5, and Addie, 3. Carrie says, “We traveled to Quetzaltenango (four hours north of Guatemala City) and did a homestay and volunteer work at the Manos de Colores after-school program. It was great to be back in an immersion setting and give my kids the chance to experience a different culture.” Carrie recently saw Candace Killmer Corey at a holiday boutique in Wenham, Mass., where Candace was showcasing her Maine Provisions products (goat cheese, pies, greenery arrangements, etc.). Carrie writes, “It was fun to catch up and see her new business.” Carrie looks forward to spending some time on the Maine coast this summer. * After 12 years in Cambridge, Jason Soules has moved to Cohasset, where he lives with his partner, Carolyn. He has connected with Kristin Ellinger Berndt, who also lives in Cohasset. Jason writes that newly married Jack Higgins and family are slated to move just down the road to Norwell this summer. * Ari Druker has arranged for Jones Lang LaSalle in Tokyo to take on three Colby students as summer interns. * Nancy Emerson Kress welcomed a baby girl, Anne, Feb. 3, who joined brothers Clay, 8, Glen, 6, and Lyle, 3. * John ’92 and Jen Larsen Daileanes live in Amesbury, Mass., with a daughter, 11, a son, 8, a gerbil, and a fish. During the past year they skied at Saddleback with Karyn Rimas Patry, had beers with Greg Burns, had many fun late nights on their annual Cape Cod vacation with Kris Balser Moussette, cuddled with Sue Sarno Mihailidis’ baby girl, Stella, on a pontoon boat in Maine, and shared some gluten-free, dairy-free meals and midnight swims with Valerie Leeds Heaphy. Jen loves teaching high school, and John works as an athletic director in beautiful Newburyport. Appropriately, John coached his daughter’s fifth-grade travel basketball team last season. * Emily Slater lives with her son, Oliver, 10, in Brooklyn, where they enjoy the foodie fruits of the hipster set. “When I’m not eating locally-sourced artisan pickles, pizza, or chocolate, I can be found on the sidelines of a baseball, soccer, or basketball game, cheering on my sports fanatic son. I left law practice last year for the wild west of litigation finance, joining Burford Finance as a vice president of underwriting, which is a lot of fun and allows more time for food, music and momming.” Emily had lunch with Chris Chamberlain, who was visiting from Pittsburgh, and Dave Nicholson ’94, from Queens. * Rod Gerdsen took a job in the advancement office at Blair Academy in N.J. as the assistant director of the annual fund. “It’s a great opportunity that will round out my knowledge of the boarding school world and hopefully open a few doors down the road.” Rod’s wife, Cassi, is the Blair Academy website photographer, and kids Kate, 10, and Jack, 7, love living and going to school in rural N.J. Rod works alongside Jess Matzkin ’94, Roy Wilson, ’07, and Kara McCabe ’06. * Are you thinking reunion yet?
