(Community Matters) what a treat, a night out with one of Steven’s former students and his wife, Brandon & Jackie Willard. so let’s count, how many unexpected connections can folks have? We already knew Brandon is a former Acton student. And . . . he works at Bazaarvoice (where Steven and I are both engaged in various ways), knows Haylie Rudy (who’s like a niece/god daughter), one of his very best friends is a young man in San Francisco (Taylor Keep) who we met in London and had dinner with recently in San Francisco and he knew our godson Cameron Lockley while growning up. Jackie – it was our first time to meet – works for Sylvan Learning, the company of our good friends Mark Strama & Crystal Coti.
Dinner at Congress Restaurant was, of course, superb. Everyone at the trio establishment is deployed in making sure of that. Thanks, team.
