Left MSU in '98 (did not graduate) Hitch hiked to Wash DC and started my cooking career in G-Town. Moved to Martha's Vineyard in '80- "beautiful". Went to Santa Cruz, CA in '81 and started my "Chef" career at the Casablanca Restaurant which I now manage. I no longer cook much but I do the buying, develop and maintain the wine list-"fun!" and do all the event planning. Followed my wife to be to Soho, Manhattan in '88 we were married in '89. We attended the '90 reunion, you may have met her. Moved to the big island of Hawaii in ,91 to start a family in a less hectic environment than NYC and had our two daughters. The are "Hapa (Asian)- Howlie (White)" in the Hawaiian language as KT is of Korean decent. I worked at the Ritz-Carlton on the Big Island as a sous chef, a great experience during our time in Hawaii.I attended the '95 reunion and I remember someone telling me I had traveled the farthest to be there. Stopped in Santa Cruz on the way back and was offered the Chef position at the Casablanca for round two and here I am 15 years later. Our family is celebrating my mother's 75th B-day on Aug. 21 so I will just miss the reunion. Hello and good health to all, Scott Cater

Thanks for the Birthday shout out! I usually get back to MI in Aug for my mom and younger sisters birthdays, but have not been able to coordinate it with reunions. Still Living in Santa Cruz, CA as the Executive Chef for Paradise Beach Grille in Capitola. I try to find as much time as possible getting down to Big Sur and the Ventana Wilderness.

Hope this finds you all well! Happy Holidayz!
