Class of 1983
Gary Anderson Hi everyone! Here is my bio in a nutshell. After SHS, I got my BA from Occidental College and moved up to Berkeley. I lived there for a decade, coordinating a vocational education program for developmentally disabled teens. I met and married a wonderful woman, then followed her home to Minnesota to raise our kids. I am currently working in health care, on the financial end. Most of my free time is now spent being happily run ragged by our two adventurous children. I don’t get out to CA much anymore, but you are welcome to e-mail me.

Florence Assalit Hi everyone, Time has really gone by too fast... I'm currently working for a start-up internet company in the southbay. I keep myself busy with hiking, animal rights issues, and volunteer work for animal causes. Been a vegetarian for 10 years now and feeling great. Been with my boyfriend for quite a long time and happy as can be. Also i have two dogs that i love dearly.

Kelli (Ater) Lovejoy Hello all! It's 2008, I have been married since 1983 and am soon to celebrate 25 years of marriage the last day of December. I have a daughter who is 23 and two boys one 18, and the youngest son is 16. My granddaughter is 2 1/2 years old now. I wonder am I the only grandmother from the class of 83? My husband and I and the youngest son live in Southeast Texas. I hope I can make one of the reunions I think it would be a blast.

James Aviani Wow the time flies! Married for 14 years with one adorable 2 year old girl. I live in Santa Barbara and am CIO for a publicly traded company. I run marathons, drink red wine, and try to not read my Blackberry at dinner. I missed the 20th but will certainly show up for the 25th (should it exist.)
2007-01-05

Kellie (Bachiero) Jamile Hello Spartans! Don't hate me, but I married a Tarter (Jeff Jamile '85) two years ago. You'll have a chance to harass him at the reunion tomorrow night. I sure hope we have a great turn out to represent the awesome class of '83. We are living in Torrance with our 4 kids (Cassidi 13, Dominic 10, Alani 9, and Kai 7) who are following in my academic footsteps (Seaside and Calle Mayor). Jeff is a 5th grade teacher at Seaside and I own a business (tradeshow/convention industry) with my father and two brothers (Kenny '82 and Kevin '85). We stay busy coaching and keeping track of the kids. Can't wait to catch up with all of you at the reunion - bring pictures of your family. Take good care.

Michael Barnett Hey All. Nice to see the old names, and some of the old faces. I went to El Camino for awhile after high school, then trekked up to the bay area to go to school in Santa Cruz, CA. My high school buddy Roni Portillo (you've GOT to remember him!) was up there as well, and we're still best buds. I met a girl from Chile there, and we've been married for 12 years. We have a 7 year old daughter (her birthday is today!). After working as a Systems Administrator for a Pharmaceutical company in Silicon Valley, I tried a dot.bomb, and got laid off. Moved to Katy, TX, of all places, and am now working as a consultant for SAP. Cool to see what y'all are doing with your lives!

Seth L. Basen Greetings from Southern Arizona! Been enjoying a little bit of everything over the past twenty...way too much to itemize here, other than that I'm happliy married for the last six, buying books for a regional distributor, personal fitness training, and wingin' it back to the ol' South Bay for some quality beach time whenever I can get away! Looking forward to seeing many of you at the reunion...whenever that is.
2003-03-24

Brian Beckman Thanks go out to Jane(my sister) for the representation, but I feel as if I see half of you folks weekly at the beach or at Hennessey's. For those that I don't see, I married Julie Edgington(class of 1981) in 1991,we've got two wonderful kids, and we recently purchased a house in Torrance. I did move away for a while, but Redondo Beach was just too damn far away! See you in August.
2003-07-09

Tim Blume Hey fellow 83er's... It was great seeing you all at our reunion! That was a blast! It's hard for me to believe that 20 years has gone by. It made me realize what a great class we had and how much I missed everyone. Take care and keep in touch. Feel free to email me....Aloha

Guy Bunyard After leaving SHS I went to El Camino, then transferred to Stanford where I graduated in '88. Got my masters in math in '90 from CSULB, and have been teaching math ever since. Started teaching and coaching football at El Camino (was there for five years), got married in '90 and lived in Culver City for three years, and then moved to Maryland where I currently live (my wife is from Massachusetts and we wanted to be closer to her family). I currently teach math at a community college, and also work part-time for my church with the youth ministry. I coached football out here for four years too, but had to give that up because of time contraints - I have two boys (2 1/2 and 15 months) and twin girls on the way - could come at anytime now. I do miss SoCal but Maryland is a great place to live.

Larry Carstens What can I say? Today is Sept. 14, 2002, and I just found this website. It was great to read about what my classmates have been up to. So now I must augment. Over the years, I have "settled down" somewhat, but still act "nutty" from time to time by choice (not compulsion). In 1986, I studied for a semester in Cambridge, England and said farewell to all by jumping into the Cam River on a cold, cloudy English day. (I had to ride home on a bicycle later, so, yes, I got sick...) In 1989, I graduated from Loyola Marymount, and not long afterward, became a high school English teacher (no roasted hot dogs in class, though). In 1993-94, I taught for a year in Spain and rode through France, England and Ireland on a motorcycle. In 1996, I got married to a beautiful Filipina-American girl from Tempe, Arizona. Since then, we have had three chitlins (aged 4, 2, and 7 months). In May, 2001, we bought a beautiful hilltop home in Castaic, which overlooks Magic Mountain. I have been able to afford this because of pretty decent pay I get (from LAUSD) as a result of National Board Certification and a Master's Degree (from CSUN, 2000), and teaching part-time at the local community college (College of the Canyons). I'm still about as "religious" as before, and sometimes write for religous publications (in my own "off the wall" way, of course). I'm sorry I'm not in the area any more, but you all remain in my heart and memories. This just in for Feb. 2008: Sorry I missed the 25 year reunion, but I'll try and make the next one. Update addendum: 2 more chillins: John, born on July 10, 2003 and Catherine, born Nov. 30, 2005. Now we're the 21st Century Waltons! Whoa!

Joe Carton I left the South Bay in 1999 and moved a little further south to Huntington Beach. I have been married 17 years and have one boy, James, age 15. I work for The Gas Company in Marketing and have been with them for 18 years. Spend my life with the family, working and surfing. Every once in awhile I drive by South and think back fondly of the good and bad times. Any Walterian's or BL'ers out there that survived? Joe

Cynthia Cassinelli Hey there all: It is amazing how nice it is to catch up a bit on what so many of us are up to. After graduating from UCLA, I chucked the degree and opened a travel agency in OC...as you do. Sold it a few years later, moved to beautiful Denver where I lived for 10 years, working in the communications industry in global sales, until I accepted a similar position in Sydney a year ago. I have worked extensively in Australia and Asia with this last role and have been fortunate to have my fiance' also working out here and sharing this adventure/seeing so much of the world. My Dad and brother John still live by Rocketship Park, so I do get back to the old stomping grounds quite a bit and always remember, and wish everyone well!

Monica (Colley) Lehmann Hey! Wanted to update my info on the site for any South High Alum out there who actually read it...We moved away from Northern Calif. in Feb '08 and relocated to South Florida. Love it here! More beach-oriented, like what I was used to growing up in Redondo. Our girls are now 15 & 12, the older one's an artsy/computer game freak, younger one's a competitive gymnast. Hubby's a property investor. I hang out w/ the fam, & try to get to the beach whenever I can, now that I have access to it once again (thank the Lord!)Hope you're all well. E-mail me!

Chris Corman After living in San Diego during the 90's, I moved back to the South Bay. I am currently working for Mattel as a Sr. Marketing Manager on our Hot Wheels product. With the move, my wife Holly and I get to see a number of Alum on a consistent basis. It also allows us to spend more time with my sister Katrina who is married with two little girls, my dad (Coach Corman) and my mom.

Dawn (Corsini) Breski Well, it seems I'm involved back in high school again - my daughter is in her sophomore year at - West High! My son starts next year. They are much better at the high school thing than I was, both are wonderful athletes. Hello to all - I was sorry I missed the 20th.

Allyson (DeLanoy) Giunta Hi everyone! I left CA in '84 and havn't made it back yet, although I keep trying. I am living in Staten Island, New York and I am married with 3 wonderful kids. I can hardly believe my oldest daughter is starting high school, it seems like just yesterday we were on the football field for our graduation. I've lost touch with everyone after so many years and I'm so happy to find this site. Anyone out there who remembers can e-mail me at ally717@aol.com. I'd love to hear about the reunion.
2003-08-20

Toni (DiOrio) Lerner It was really nice to stumble across this website. I am amazed at all the wonderful things that have been accomplished, and sad to hear about the passing of some of our friends. Since graduating SHS, I moved to Orange County, have been married to the same great guy for over 20 years, have three wonderful kids (19, 16, 11), and have been a school addict! I am currently working on my second graduate degree and a doctorate simultaneously! Life is good; I enjoy teaching at both the college and high school levels, and spending any free time with my family. I hope to be able to attend the next reunion. God's blessings to all!

Jack Greenbaum Good to read about what we've all been up to! As a few of you witnessed I took the long way through UCSB. Once I got the hang of school I went back for an MS in Computer Engineering, narrowly escaping without my PhD. Five years in Silicon Valley was enough, been back in Santa Barbara since 1998. My wife Lisa is studying to be a jeweler. Our daughter Maddy, born in 1996, is a joy. It is surprising how many from our class came to UCSB, and how many stayed here. This is a small town, but the only time I see James is on the plane up to San Jose.

Michael Hagedorn Hello all, I graduated from UCLA in '87, married my college sweetheart in '89, started my business in '90 and have two daughters, born '93 and '94. We live in Manhattan Beach. I am a Certified Financial Planner.

I am married and living in Gardena. My wife, Nancy, is an alumni of North High (class of 85). I have a son (15 years), a daughter (2 years) and we are currently expecting a third this October.

I currently work in Manhattan Beach, and spend most of my spare time trying to keep up with my daughter and surfing as time permits. I have been blessed with my wife and family. Take care...fj

Randy Maass Hello Spartans. Well I am happy to say that I ditched my mullett back in 1986. Has it really been 20 years? Seems like it was only yesterday I was cruising the halls, trying not to be noticed in my Toughskins and velour OP shirt. Not to worry, I am still a geek. Nontheless, I feel like the luckiest guy in the world. I've got a great wife(10 years) 3 boys that run me ragged(ages 7,4, and 2)and a good gig at Fedex(17 years). We have settled in Long Beach and just bought a house down the street from Eldorado Park. I play drums in a rock band called Emberglow. Music has taken me some interesting places both geographically and otherwise but I am staying close to home now. South High was a great school. As I have gotten older I realize that my high school experience was something that I took for granted, endured rather than enjoyed, its funny how time will change our perspective on these things. Best wishes to all, Randy Maass
2003-03-14

Tim Mace Hi everyone! Sorry I missed the 20th. I love the site. I'll have to get in touch with Randy Maas as I too work for FedEx.

Annette Melton I went to the University of Colorado-Boulder after South. And now I'm back. After 15 years of working in TV and film production (mostly in Texas and Oklahoma), I'm now working on something straight from the heart. I'm on staff with a Christian student group on campus called "Campus Ambassadors". We help students delve into more than just academic and social things while they're here. I wish I'd had something like this group to connect me more with Jesus when I was in school.

Since high school, I have graduated from Cal Poly S.L.O. and am living in Concord, CA since 1989. This is about and hour east of San Francisco. My email address is what was on my powderpuff jersey Senior Year. (wildnorby@yahoo.com) Feel free to email me! Congrats to all who are married with kids. I have one boy, he is 10 years old and what a handful. I found out about the 20th reunion too late to go, but Andreas-2008 you say?? Maybe I will see you there. Bye for now.

Monica (Nosek) Gorman Hi--after several years at Reed (not culminating in a degree) I ran screaming from academia to get a real job and race motorcycles (road courses) on the side. Married my sponsor and main wrench in 1989, and we have a 7-year-old son who is not too shabby a rider himself (possibly the next Jeremy McGrath ;-)). We live in Oregon, where we share some acreage with a couple of dogs, a couple of goats, a cat and a pond full of goldfish.

Megan (O'Neill) Pierson Hello Class of '83! Hope everyone is doing well. Living in Cardiff, CA. Still surfing - that is where I met my husband of the last eight years. Have been working as a graphic artist since graduating college.

Mareva (Re') (Orr) Howse-Henderson Hey all...Well it's been a crazy last 2 years. At the reunion, as some may have noticed I was quite pregnant. To our joy, My husband and I were blessed with a boy, John Woodrow Henderson. He was named for our fathers. In January of 2005, we relocated to New Orleans, only to have Katrina hit. You'all can actually say that you know a real Katrina evacuee. We lost our home, but not our spirit. We now live in Cajun Country, the Bayou, as the thought of going back to New Orleans was entirely too stressful. This year, my oldest son, Daniel Robert Howse, graduates from South High and I will be happy to visit the football field once again. So many fond memories.....Eric Mayol if you're out there, you will be happy to know that I evacuated with a small ceramic pot that you gave to me so long ago....If anything I have my memories to carry me through life.

Tom Peitzman South High seems like another lifetime! I have been living in La Canada, CA for the past 15 years with Christa and my three daughters Hailey (10), Molly (8) and Hannah (8). You got it TWINS! I'm a Visual Effects Producer for the motion picture industry currently working on Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes". Movie business has been great for the past 15 years. It has taken me and my family around the world doing over 20 feature films.

Tonya (Penn) Maldonado Wow! This is nice to see how everyone is doing. For me after grad. I went to Europe with the singing group from South. From there I was one of the Top 10 finalist in the Miss Torrance Pageant in 83'& 84'. Graduated from El Camino and I met my husband Mario from doing a car wash there. He took me from my comfort of the South Bay and brought me to Las Vegas, NV where we have been for the last 10 years. We have two wonderful kids. Jessica who is 10, and Vincent who is 5 1/2. Mario and I have been married for 14 1/2 years and still going strong. I have been fortunate enough to stay home with my kids for the past 4 years but once my youngest goes in the 1st grade, I will be coming out of retirement. I am looking forward in seeing everyone in Aug.

Ian Porter Since my original posting, the 20th reunion has come and gone and I'm no closer to getting back to all the beauty Torrance has to offer. I'm still living in London just outside Wimbledon. Still acting. Just found out I was cut from Basic Instinct 2...not that upset about it either. Happily married for 7 years. No kids, no health plan, no savings, but a full head of hair and vacationing in the south of France. Maybe airport security will get back to normal and I'll be able to say hi at the 25th.

Hope to hear from some other 83 grads.

Elena (Schiro) McGough I finally made my way back to (Northern) California after 20 years, by way of Baltimore and Seattle. Traded the city for the country and the cubicle farm for an actual farm where I grow things for local farmers markets. It's the last thing I ever pictured for myself but life's just weird that way, don't you find? Hope to see lots of you in '08...

Sandy (Silver) Spallino Hi everyone, My family has moved back to the Hollywood Riviera after 2 years in Northern California. Look forward to seeing everyone at the reunion. I am still enjoying full time motherhood with my husband Jon and 2 daughters ages 6 and 8.

Cynthia Snyder Hello to Chris Thames, Monica, Sue, Stacy, Caroline, Michi, Paul, Gary, Mike, Will, Tony (gul)...I have seen Mr. Osberg swimming at South End. I still lifeguard summers at the south bay beaches and am (what a surprise) a band director the rest of the year. Just wanted to check out the directory and say hello.

Toni (Soukup) Muller Greetings from the Pacific Northwest - Springfield, OR, to be precise. I've looped around the country to get back to the West - Baylor Univ. in Waco, Texas (at least now everyone knows where that is); grad school and work in Charlottesville, VA; supporting husband through seminary in Philadelphia; pastor's wife in Rapid City, SD; now home-schooling mom in OR. I've enjoyed seeing a lot of the country traveling around, especially the East Coast, but it's nice to be settled in the same house for more than 2 years! Married Nick in 1989 and have two children, Eowyn (5) and Ned (almost 3). Would like more, but the clock is ticking. My degree in Ancient Greek prepared me for - absolutely nothing unless I'd gotten a Ph.D.! So I worked in administration, financial aid and computing before starting my own computer training business, which I gave up for my first-born in 1998. Jesus Christ and His church continue to be the most important commitments in my life, along with my family and close friends. (For those who had my mother as a teacher, she went home to the Lord in December 2001, after a valiant battle against cancer.)

Rob Stahl Latest Update: My wife, Jen, and I now have 2 boys, Drew (3 y.o.) and Ryan (1 y.o.). We still live next to Rocketship Park. I think if we would let them, the boys would want to live on the top floor of the rocketship. Still have 2 optometry practices in the South Bay (1 in Gardena and 1 in Manhattan Beach). Turning 40 wasn't too bad, but the knees are starting to feel it !

Rick Wolff The reunion last fall was a real blast. It was great to see so many familiar faces again. Hopefully, Andreas can put together a 25 year reunion for our class this fall. My lovely wife, Susan, and I are still living in Westlake Village. We have been married for almost 19 years. Our oldest daughter, Carina (17) is a cheerleader at Westlake High School. I can't believe that she will be going to college in 1 1/2 years. Our oldest son, Cameron (15) is playing basketball and tennis at Westlake. Chiara (13) is a 7th grader at Colina Middle School and our youngest, Connor (10) is a 5th grader at Lang Ranch. I put on the soccer cleats for my company's team recently and it is a lot of fun. Granted, I am slower than I even was in high school. I know, that is hard to believe! I changed jobs and I am working as the CFO for SAGE Publications in Thousand Oaks. Drop me an e-mail as I would love to hear from you. rwolff2000@yahoo.com.

To bring you up to date; met my wife Lisa of 13 years at CSULB while getting my degree in Industrial Design. Worked and moved and moved and worked from Santa Barbara to Hollywood and Sherman Oaks, and now I'm back in Torrance, if you can believe it. Currently doing the freelance thing as a graphic designer and art director, mostly for entertainment companies. We have a son Evan and I coach his soccer teams like my dad Paul, whom many of you played for, used to do. Peace.

Ray Zepeda After South, my saxophone and I headed East to M.I.T. where I graduated in 1988 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Since then, I've been living near Hermosa Beach and have worked mostly as a project manager or process engineer for several companies in the oil & gas industry. Musically, I've remained active through the years, gigging with several bands but mostly with the Tyrone Anthony Group ("smooth" jazz). Earned a Masters in Jazz Studies at U.S.C. in 1998. Played with Lou Rawls in 1996. Recorded my own straight-ahead jazz CD in 1998, "Step By Step" (Soundsketch Records), that has yet to be released. (Hope to have copies by our 20th.) Spend a lot of time working out at Bally's in Manhattan Beach. Have done a lot of intrepid travelling recently - Egypt, Israel, Palestine, India, Kashmir, Pakistan, the Afghan border. E-mail me and I'll let you know where I'm playing. 'See you at a gig or at the gym!
