For the last twenty years...

If I had to sum up my life since HHS, in one word, it would be "international". After graduating from CSU in May 1980, I went straight into the Peace Corps. The Philippines and Southeast Asia became my home until early 1984. "Peace Corps, the toughest job you'll ever love." That was true for me; I loved it and it launched the next phase in my life, working for the Hach Company in Loveland, Colorado. I have been with Hach since February, 1984, wow, 12 years! That's longer than I have done anything in life, besides school. At Hach I am responsible for sales and marketing in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim. The job requires that I travel to Asia 15 weeks or more a year. In 1997 Hach plans to open an office in Singapore and they have asked me to move there for 3 to 5 years to establish the office. I will extend an open invitation to one and all to come to Singapore for a visit. I would love to show you around Singapore and Southeast Asia if you have time.

Working for Hach is really just a means to finance what I like to do: bicycle, camp, fish, golf, and hike, not necessarily in that order. With all my travels it is hard for me to remain an active part of my church, but church life is still my number one priority. I make it back to Holyoke as often as possible, that's been two or three times per year.
I remember...

After being a freshman, I enjoyed everything at HHS. Just being with friends and experiencing the freedom we had is what I remember most. Sports, pulling pranks (and not being caught), hanging out and cruising the streets were what I loved to do. Those things do not have much to do with school. Like work, school was a means to another end: having fun!
