Hello, ’07 classmates! Megan here with a few updates. First of all, I need to give a little shout-out to my co-secretary, Victoria Belyavsky Pinsky. In October, she ran her debut 26.2-mile race at the Wineglass Marathon. Congratulations, Victoria!
In other news, Laura Catana reports that she recently joined the marketing team at Symphonic Distribution where she manages marketing teams across the U.S. and Colombia. She was also invited to join an artist management collective as the artist relations lead and works closely with musicians to develop their musical careers. Although she is always planning her next international adventure, Laura is back stateside and currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
Sarah Elmaleh also has some exciting career updates. She says, “2023 was big for games I’d worked on for years finally releasing: as a voice actor, Hi-Fi Rush, [and] as a voice director, The Lamplighter’s League, Goodbye Volcano High, and more Fortnite. But the biggest project by far has been chairing the Interactive Negotiating Committee at SAG-AFTRA. At the time of writing, we’ve been negotiating with the major game publishers over issues like wages, safety, and AI for over a year—with luck by the time of publishing, we’ll have a deal that protects performers in our space. Best wishes to all my fellow ’07s!”
Nicholas Nauman said, “I have disengaged with Wesleyan in recent years: at our 10-year reunion, I watched President Roth deflect students who were incredulously angry at the University’s decision to override student and staff organizing for divestment from apartheid Israel. This is why I’ve reengaged: the organizing has persisted and we can all take part.”
As always, we are eager for your updates! If you have news (big or small!), please send it to your class secretaries, Megan and Victoria, at the email addresses below. Wishing you all a peaceful and prosperous 2024.
