Although I somehow missed the plane that took Dan Poynter to the North Pole, I did climb the "Hell-for-Sure" pass in the Sierras on my 50th birthday. Apart from that high point, here are a few notes from the last fifty years.
From Lowell I went to Berkeley: I spent my junior year in Spain (where I married) and after graduating traveled to London for a Masters Degree. My first job was in the U. S. Foreign Service but I left that pretty quickly and spent the next seven years in the UN (New York, Geneva and Guatemala). With three children in tow my wife and I went next to Washington, DC, where I worked at a think tank before joining Zbigniew Brzezinski's National Security Council Staff. Working at the White House was a life changing experience: after leaving the government in 1980 I started a consulting business and a boutique investment firm in that order. After advising Goldman Sachs in 1989 I joined that investment bank in late 1990.
Just after we moved to New York in 1991 my wife suddenly passed away. After I got back on my feet I continued with Goldman in New York, moving to Mexico in late 1994 to open the firm's office in Mexico City. I left Goldman Sachs in 1999 and spent the next five years founding and running a start-up company whose main office was in Texas.
I married Renee Nino de Rivera in Mexico in 1996 and we now live in New York, where I am a Director at LECG, LLC, an international consulting firm. Renee and I have five children between us and I have one grandson.
With many regrets I won't be able to make it to the reunion,
