Hometown: Beautiful Hamilton, NJ, about twenty minutes southeast of Princeton
Major: Chemical Engineering. What WAS I thinking?!
Year: The Great Class of 1984
Favorite Place on Campus: Wow… this is a tough one – so many options! I always loved the Rothschild Arch, but that’s not really a building. My first year, I loved Palmer (now Frist), because I found a relatively unoccupied air conditioned office there that made for a great study room. When I turned legal, I developed a somewhat typical fondness for the so-called Chancellor Green Student Association. Then, of course, I fell in love with Charter. Since graduation, I would probably have to say the Chapel is my favorite building on campus, as I got married there and have watched my children in numerous performances. Alexander Hall is a close second, but only if I am sitting in the orchestra or par terre seats. Also high on the list are Jadwin Gymnasium and the new Lewis Center. Like I said, this is a tough one!
Career: I am responsible for IT Enterprise Architecture at AAA Mid-Atlantic. I spent roughly the first third of my career in chemical process automation, and the recent two-thirds in information technology and architecture.
How I got Involved With the Grad Board:
My senior year at Charter was life-changing. I was fortunate enough to live in the Clubhouse as a non-officer, and I absolutely loved it. I knew everyone in the club – at that time, about 180 members – at least pretty well. Shortly after I graduated, I realized I wanted to pay it forward; to help ensure that the experience I had would be available to future generations of Princetonians. So when Michael Schechner ’84 reached out to recruit me, I immediately agreed to serve.
