When Julian Cohen, AB’91, and a Miami restaurant critic formed GeneratioN J Productions in 1996, they began by writing screenplays, scripts, and movie treatments.

Last year, for National Poetry Month, they paired local chefs with local poets—including Campbell McGrath, AB’86, winner of the 1997 Kingsley-Tufts award for poetry—in an event called Now Taste This!. When not at his day job doing market research for a medical malpractice insurer, Cohen is trying to sell a screenplay and write a novel. He notes, “Sure, there are drawbacks to Miami—the lack of culture, no public transportation, hurricanes, L.A.style traffic, concealed-weapons permits, and the entire month of August.” But, he adds, “Sunset from my balcony is exquisite, something out of a Dali. When my U of C friends visit me (okay, only one visits me—Saj Sanjay, AB’90), they can’t figure out why they’re not living here.” Mary F.

Hong, AB’91, moved to Seattle two years ago and works as a project leader at Microsoft Corporation, where he has found “the brightest group I’ve been around since my days in Hyde Park, although here we debate the virtues of RDO vs. ODBC instead of moral relativism vs. moral objectivism.” Hong adds, “I’ve seen Bill four times.” David A. Suess, AB’91, passed the Illinois bar last year and began working for the law firm Jenner & Block in Chicago. This year, Suess has a judicial clerkship with the Supreme Court of Hawaii. Patricia W.

92 College alumni—Lesley F. Kim, AB’92, writes: “Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.” Does this sound like your life? Have you been avoiding sending your news because you haven’t gotten married, climbed Mount Everest, or discovered the cure for the common cold? Well neither have most of the class of ’92, but we want to know how you’re doing anyway. New job? New city? New hobby? As they say, inquiring minds want to know. Sandra Cherfrere, AB’92, AM’92, is in her second year at the University of Florida College of Law (Sandra says: “GO GATORS!”).

Kira Signer, AB’92, is looking for housing in San Francisco, a task which she says is roughly as difficult as graduating from the U of C with a 4.0 GPA in chemistry. That’s gotta hurt. Otherwise, Kira has been busy planning events for the San Francisco alumni club, including a successful Habitat for Humanity project last fall. That’s it for now. Hope the winter months aren’t too harsh on you—remember, you probably have a U of C classmate you could be visiting in Florida or California.
