Way back in 1989, when I was 18, leaving Hellesdon High School (Norwich,UK) all I could think about was starting my new business. By the time I was 19 I was going to be a millionaire, or at least well on the way. (Actually what happened was I did not manage to sell a single thing until month 13 of my first year, which people might call good character-building stuff, and an invaluable opportunity to learn from mistakes, but was very depressing at the time. But this page is not about how to fail a business.)
I quickly lost touch with everyone I went to school with. It wasn't until a few years later that I even started to regret this. At that point I was living the other side of the world (Tokyo, Japan) and doing something about it was all but impossible.
If you do remember me please do get in touch. I would love to hear what you have been doing. The best way is by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put "Hellesdon" in the subject line to help get past my (sometimes over-zealous) spam filters.
Here is a then and now photo:
Here are just a few of the people I remember and would really love to hear from (sorry if I got your name wrong, or missed you - memory gets surprisingly fuzzy). If you know anyone on this list please let me know (or tell them about this page).
(Yes, I am on the friendsreunited.co.uk site.)
