2002
Left the auto industry to work at a tiny software firm.

2001
Graduated college, continued working in the auto industry from my internships.

1990 – 2000
Tried to be an engineer my first year of university, but left for business school (thanks for the tip Dad)

High School was at De La Salle. Again with the uniforms, but this time all dudes. But, Senior Year was a blast. James, Ron, Jeff, if you guys read this site, drop me a line.

Half of second grade until 8th grade was at St. Lawrence. Private Catholic school, uniforms, also a distinctive smell when I visit that school. Oh, and for some reason, I still remember the taste!? of the pews in church (don’t ask).

1980 – 1990
Second grade was at St. Paul’s. I met Bryon on the bus one day, and have known him since. He rocks.

I went to kindergarten at Grebner. I remember the playground being distinctly metal and plastic and cold? why cold?. To this day, the smell of the inside of that school is still in my brain.

1979
I come into this world. I am named after my parent’s close friend Doug Beaupre.
