Since April, Kelly Roche has been living and working on commercial fishing vessels in the Bering Sea as a North Pacific groundfish observer. All of the data she collects goes to the National Marine Fisheries Service. After her current 90-day contract ends, she’ll volunteer for eight weeks at a sea turtle conservation center in Eikwe, Ghana, before resuming work as an observer in January. * Cliff Katz spent the past year living in N.Y.C., doing business coursework at Columbia and interning with a local investment startup. In September he moved to Azerbaijan to begin training with the Peace Corps. * Catherine Hawkins enjoyed being a bum in New Zealand for the year after graduation and is now at UNC-Greensboro to study fiction writing. * Heather Quadir is a dental worker and nurse for a clinic outside Pucallpa in the Peruvian Amazon. * Collin Jenkins continues to manage a climbing gym in Rockville, Md., and just completed a trip to Washington’s Mt. Rainier to ice-climb. He’s planning a climbing trip to the Middle East. * Ben Desmond teaches sixth grade math in Lynn, Mass., and lives in the North End of Boston with Ben Metcalf and Jo Bellairs. All three used to meet up with Dan Sidman for beverages before he moved to Korea to teach English. * Benjy Ogden completed his first year and qualifiers for Boston University’s Ph.D. program in economics and is officially a Ph.D. candidate. * Nick Steele, Jack Vernamonti, and Craig Bunker moved to Kendall Square in Cambridge, where Nick does tax consulting, Jack does medical research, and Craig works in financial services. * With the support of the Colby Alumni Network, Eddie Benjamin started a company and web app, CollegeTempo (collegetempo.com), aimed at answering the question “What’s going on?” in college communities through a series of social calendars. He is beta launching the site this fall. * Liz Fontaine enters her second year teaching history and French, and coaching field hockey and lacrosse, at Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Wilbraham, Mass. This summer she traveled to Vietnam and Cambodia with students from her school studying social media. * Khoa Nguyen is an analyst at Citi in N.Y.C., where he enjoys running into Rachel Gleicher, Mike Yohai, and Cliff Katz (before he moved). This summer he visited Canada, where he reunited with Loni Pisani, finished his first beavertail—two sandwiches from Nate’s Smoked Meat in one sitting—and ate a lobster at the Keg in Ottawa. Khoa also met with the uncle and friends of Tara Brian ’10 in “Bytown” (Ottawa) a.k.a. the friendliest city in the world. * Aqsa Mahmood visited Maine for a week this summer and brought her 14-month-old daughter with her. She is starting her second year as a sales analyst at JPMorgan. * Tom Barnico, Mike Dakers, Matt Vivero, Pete O’Hanlon, Will Brewer, Jason Schlundt, Chris Scharff, Ben Desmond, Tony Vorlicek, and Ben Metcalf, enjoyed a weekend in Biddeford Pool, Maine, with V.J. Vesnaver providing stories about his training to become a Time Cop. Vorlicek and Metcalf set up a lobster bake, and Tucker Cushing was a notable, albeit understandable, absence. They all wish Tucker the best of luck as he travels to Guatemala in the coming months.
