Sam Bayne and wife Katie moved into a new home in Buckhead, outside of Atlanta, GA. Their young sons, Sam and Drew, think having their own pool is quite nifty. Sam is enjoying a successful career in real estate and reports, “The market is flying down here.” Katie recently celebrated her 15th year with Coca-Cola.
Amy Scribner made prints of negatives belonging to Marika Bitetzakis Apostolakis, which she had been carrying around since 1986. The shots taken of classmates during Senior Week (the booze cruise, awards dinners, etc.) decked in very ’80s apparel were “absolutely hysterical,” notes Amy, who adds, “We all actually look the same, but we have better haircuts.” Given that our 20th reunion comes up in June 2006, perhaps Amy can be convinced to play the role of class photographer.
Kathy Dick Nye and husband John Nye recently acquired their own auction house in Morristown, NJ, called Dawson and Nye. John spent 15 years at Sotheby’s as director of American furniture. Their new business conducts monthly auctions that include furniture, antiques, silver, jewelry, and fine art. The Nye family—including three children ages 12, 7, and 4—lives in South Orange.
Many thanks to Elise Phillips Margulis for e-mailing news of several classmates who gathered at Martha Grady Ucci’s home in Rehobeth, MA, over the summer. Martha and husband Anthony have two children: Olivia and Henry. Martha is a professor of English at Brown University. Elise lives in New Jersey with husband Jeff, their dog, and four cats. A senior account executive for Fido Friendly magazine, she authors a column each issue, about traveling with her dog. Elise is also active in a local animal rescue organization.
Holly Hepp Galvan teaches theater arts at the College of Mount St. Vincent, and lives in Astoria, NY, with husband Robert and daughter Gina, 4.
In 2002 Paul O’Connor moved to Kent, England, with Genzyme Corporation, a biotech company. He enjoys being within 30 minutes of London, although he’s not always thrilled with the English weather. Paul’s travels have included surfing in the Algarve and in Cornwall, skiing the Austrian Alps, and visiting Dublin and Paris (scene of his junior year abroad). He also makes it back regularly to Brookline, MA, to see family and friends. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Herb Eidt finished his residency in orthopedic surgery and is stationed at Ft. Stewart, GA. He and wife Denise live outside Savannah with their three young children. Herb is scheduled to leave for a six-month stay in Afghanistan in early 2005; Denise and the children will remain in Savannah.
In November, after a long hiatus from active music making, David Harrell released a new CD, entitled More Than Happy, under the band name The Layaways (to hear a sample, go to www.thelayaways.com). Most of the initial recording and mixing was done in David’s home studio in Chicago; Eric Masunaga handled the final editing and audio mastering in his new studio in downtown Boston. (Eric opened Modulus, a DVD creation and 5.1 surround-sound mixing and mastering facility last year.) In other news, David married Laura Lallos on December 21, 2003, in New Orleans, LA. Laura is a law student at the University of Chicago. David recently returned to work full-time at the Morningstar investment research firm after taking a sabbatical to attend Archeworks, an alternative design school in Chicago.
Longtime bachelor Roland Mackenzie was married Labor Day Weekend in Jackson Hole, WY. He and his bride, Kirsten, celebrated in early October at a party with family and friends here in Baltimore, a fun and lively event my husband Ken and I attended. While we missed seeing other Skidmore alums, we enjoyed spending time with Herb Eidt—and, above all, seeing the huge smile on Roland’s face.
