Yes! Attending Reunion

After graduation I attended the Berklee School of Music with the goal of attaining an arranging and composition degree. In 1976, enrolled at Emerson College in Boston and was a member of the Emerson Comedy Workshop. In 1980, I graduated with a BFA in Creative Writing. During my time at Emerson, I was a stand-up comedian and a regular performer at the "Comedy Connection" and the Ding Ho Comedy Club from 1979-1982. Moved to NYC in 1982 and became a member of the "Chicago City Limits" improvisational comedy group, performing live shows in New York and touring all over the U.S. with the National Touring Company until 1989.

In 1987, moved over to MTV as a writer & performer on the ground breaking game show "Remote Control". In the 90s went on to being a staff writer at Comedy Central and Nickelodeon as well as a stand-up performer at "Catch A Rising Star" and The Comedy Cellar. In 2002, I left the business to raise 2 children. Today I am writing short stories and am close to completing my first novel "Hooey and False Bravado".

Mr. Narduci was an amazing man! He was my band director for all 3 years I played in band at Pollard Junior High School. He also pulled me in the NHS orchestra for a special saxophone contribution. He was passionate about music, talented, and a real leader. I count myself fortunate to have known him and I benefitted from his expertise. Rest in Peace, Mr. Narducci!

Artie and I were good friends at Needham High School. I played in a rock band with him and he was a good singer as well as guitarist. Easy going and talented, he was an avid tennis player as well. One afternoon, we snuck into Longwood to see some professional tennis matches. Apparently he'd snuck in before, as our entry into the game was facilitated by climbing a tree outside the high fence, scrambling along a large branch and then jumping inside the perimeter. Great guy--gone too soon!

Walter and I were close friends during my time at Pollard Junior High School. Along with Mark Davis, John Ericksoin, Peter Costello, Jim Schermerhorn, Fred Kempton, Bruce Howell and several others, we were a tight-knit group who played baseball, football and street hockey together. I remember one baseball game where Walter played shortstop wearing a catcher's mitt. He was friendly, smart and he had a terrific sense-of-humor  His death affected me deeply as it was the first time someone close to me passed away. As a side-note, he took me along to my first rock concert, a memorable night at Boston Gardon to see Jimi Hendrix.
