Thanks for the updates this round. Take a look at what our class is up to!

Also in New York is Josh Smith. Josh is living in Brooklyn and making a massive amount of music with an all-star team of friends and collaborators. For the past two years, he has also been secretly posing as Michael Rosen in order to write silly updates on his own behavior for the Wesleyan magazine. He has been having a great time doing this and he sincerely hopes no one finds out.

Alex Bean recently relocated from working in the advancement office at the Windward School in Los Angeles to the Dublin School, a small private school deep in the boonies of New Hampshire near the Keene area. She is serving as the director of annual giving, an advisor, and a dorm parent! Alex is hoping to make it to campus this spring at some point while in the Conn. area.

Both currently abroad are Jared Gimbel and Benjamin Petrie LaFirst. Jared recently authored his master’s thesis: “From Helsinki to Hania: Jewish Media Narratives About Europe, and Why They Matter Today,” and will spend fall 2014 and the subsequent academic year in JTS’s Modern Jewish Studies graduate program. Benjamin reports, “I am living and working abroad in Austria as an English teacher, and will be moving to Frankfurt am Main this summer to live with my fiancé, Christopher Ulrich Jürgensen, who I met in Regensburg while studying abroad from Wesleyan! We will be getting married in New York this summer, if all goes as planned.”

Kim Prosise adds, “I’m working as a traveling freelance writer and circus performer based out of Boston, Mass. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to visit Wesleyan family around the country and spent two weeks celebrating the New Year with Joey Heller and Gabriel Urbina ’13 in L.A.

Last but not least is Danielle St. Pierre, who has been working as an associate editor at AOL/The Huffington Post Media Company. She has been there since November 2013 and is working on the women’s lifestyle vertical.

Thanks for the updates!
