I'm still in disbelief that it's been twenty years. You all must be getting old! Not much has changed on my end& except the receding hair line. I'm still sixteen in my own head and often act like it (just ask my wife). I'm pretty much the same guy you may or may not have known in high school& I'm with the same girl all these years (Sarah Painter-Koziol). I live blocks away from Nicolet, still like playing with electronic toys, and still hit stuff with sticks (drums and occasionally unruly children). Post graduation I attended UW-Milwaukee for a short period. I was anxious to enter the working world and save my pennies for a music education. In 1992 Sarah joined me to live in Burbank, California. I attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California where I graduated with honors. Sarah and I returned to Milwaukee and married in 1995. How I ever convinced her to stick with me from 1987-1995 without a ring on her finger is one of the great wonders of the world! It must be my stunning good looks, boyish charm, and my razor like wit &dead silence. We are truly blessed with three lovely children (Benny-8, Grace-5, and Brady-1) and one cat (Lily) who thinks Sarah is her mother. By day I am a Project Manager and Salesperson for a company called Techteriors in Mequon. We specialize in home automation/smart home technology. By night I am a drummer for a band called The LoveMonkeys. Come to a show and the drinks are on me! I'm reminded daily how fortunate I am to have a happy, healthy family, incredible wife (now a hot Mom), a career I enjoy, and still play music. It's a wonderful life&
I'm saddened to learn of our fellow classmates who are no longer with us. It is another reminder for me of the fragile existence we all lead. I haven't seen most of you since graduation and I sincerely hope you are all well.
