Some of our classmates we don’t remember very well, usually because we had limited interaction with them back at DA. Well, take the time to connect with them if they are nearby because it’s well worth it!
Case in point: Grant Gassman. Originally from California, Grant went to Colorado College after DA and pretty much never left the state. He’s working at a european reinsurance company these days with a 35 hour work week (half-day EVERY Friday!) so we met for Friday beverages…
It was so much fun to catch up on what we had been doing since DA and what brought us to Denver. Kudos to Grant too for facing down the impending 5-0 with an improved diet that helped him lose 40+ pounds this summer. He’s happy and that’s about all we can ask for at this point!
His hobby is racing his old Porsche (apologies for the layman’s lame description of what is probably a great machine – even though its engine is currently broken). Often his fair weather Fridays take him east into the Plains to race on a grand prix like track. He, of course, does all his own work on his cars. The street ride he is standing next to is pretty customized as well: i.e. “it’s pretty good in the snow”….
