Alfred Poor Class of 1969
18 March 2008
I was in Delhi for the second half of 9th grade and all of 10th. I was stage manager and had a cameo role in Around the World in 80 Days. The year and a half I spent in India was a special and influential time in my life.
After a stint in education and computer consulting, I became a freelance writer and spent 20+ years writing for PC Magazine and other computer magazines. Three years ago, I realized that the need for computer information has declined, so I retooled and repackaged myself as an HDTV expert (see www.hdtvprofessor.com). I also currently work with a marketing research firm that tracks the HDTV market.
My wife and I've been married for 35 years come this June. We have a daughter and a son; and thanks to our daughter and her husband, our first grandchild arrived last January.
My wife is a potter so we spend a bunch of weekends at craft shows in the Philadelphia area. We're also involved in music and have a sailboat on the Chesapeake that we get to as often as we can.
I can't recall contact with any AIS classmates since leaving India, but a few of the names on the website do ring a bell.
Thanks for reaching out,
