Here's an update for the reunion page. I still don't
know if I'm going to be able to make it. My older daughter starts college in
I couldn't make the 2003 reunion (and as this is
written don't know if I will be able to make this one).
Not much has changed since 2003. We still live in
the Virginia suburbs of DC (Fairfax County, right next to Alexandria). I
continue to practice securities law with Dechert LLP and became a partner in
2006 (If you want to see what I look like now here's a link to my page on my
firm's website: Dechert
LLP, Washington, D.C. ).
My older daughter Rachel is 18 and off to Virginia
Commonwealth University as a Health (pre-Med/Nursing) major. She is a
talented, compassionate young woman with a bright future. My younger daughter
Sarah (17) will be a senior this fall at West Potomac High School having
earned varsity letters in rowing and track (more to come I'm sure). She
sings in the school choir and has been honor roll off and on since her
My wife LaDonna is a stay at home mom who likes to
row boat and dabble in politics. We like to travel when we can, although there
is probably not much traveling in the cards until we get both our kids off to
My favorite pastimes are fishing, hunting, skiing,
gardening, working on cars, fixing things and cooking.
We have land on the Chesapeake Bay and hope to build
a weekend/retirement home there in a few years. We will be able to host
visiting friends and family and I will be able to fish, hunt, crab, garden,
tong for oysters, restore cars (maybe race them, too), ride motorcycles, and
build and fix things.
I got together with two of my three siblings,
Rebecca (SLOSH Class of '74) and Peter (SLOSH Class of '76), for some skiing
in Utah this last March. I hope to do some more of that.
Life is good and getting better and I hope the same
is true for all of you."
