David Joffe Class of 1974
I went to AIS in New Delhi from my freshman year through junior year of high school (1970-1973). I graduated my senior year from AIS in Bangkok, Thailand, in 1974. However, I left my heart in India!!! I was part of the "stoner" group when I was at AIS in New Delhi. I hung aroung with Eric Marquis, John Hoefling , Steve Metzner, Tom Merian and Stefan Halens. Anne Pearson was my girlfriend my sophmore year of high school. I miss the "good old" days!!! Then, I had to grow up. Bummer!!!
I went to Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and graduated with a English/Philosophy degree in 1979. I decided I didn't want to be a teacher, so I became a salesperson for several Fortune 500 Consumer Foods Product Companies (Kraft & Lever Bros.). I eventually met my wife, Nel, in 1986 in Portland, Oregon. She was a registered nurse and encouraged me to go into the pharmaceutical industry. I joined a pharmaceutical company in 1990; and they transferred me to Orlando, Florida. I left the pharmaceutical industry and joined a medical company that sells large pieces of equipment in the Cardiology Dept. i.e. X-ray equipment, Image and Data Management Systems, etc.
I have been in Florida for 15 years and have 3 children: Drew (15 years old) ,Will (12 years old), & Amanda (11 years old). I have been married 19 years and am still trying to understand how women think (Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus). Also, over the years, I have become a follower of Jesus Christ. I think they call that being a "Christian". He is the true bodhisattva!!!
Come to Disney World and join me in Mickey's playground!!
