Musician Dan Miller’s band, They Might Be Giants, won a Grammy Award in 2009. Dan also runs Volume / Music + Sound, a custom music house based in Brooklyn, N.Y., and San Francisco that provides audio for TV and films, and he composes scores for films, and music for TV shows and commercials. He writes, “Fortunately, most of my roommates from college are involved in music in one way or another. Scott Klass is a fantastic songwriter with several records out. Rob Sharenow is running and creating hit TV shows and movies. Steve Nathanson is a commercial music writer. It’s a mutual support group that we have all benefited from through the years.” Earlier this year, Dan had an excellent catch-up dinner with Scott Burton in Austin, Texas. In related news, Steve Nathanson was busy over the summer creating musical cues for Katie Couric’s new talk show, which debuted in September, and is enjoying his second year of living in Montclair, N.J. Stephanie Tilenius, IBS MA’90, joined Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a venture capital firm, as executive-in-residence, primarily focusing on companies within its Digital Growth Fund. She had served as vice president of global commerce and payments at Google. Prior to joining Google, she was at eBay for nine years. Stephanie also recently joined the board of directors at Coach, the leading marketer of modern classic American accessories. Sander Florman serves as director of the Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. His work as director of the Transplant Institute at Tulane University earned 
him recognition as one of New Orleans Magazine’s “People to Watch,” and he was twice named “Health-Care Hero” by New Orleans CityBusiness. Lori Bring-Olbrys writes, “My 15-year-old daughter went to sleep-away camp for her sixth summer, and my 12-year-old son was busy with tournament baseball. I’m working in New York as an advertising recruiter and enjoying time with my wonderful Brandeis girlfriends. I recently spent a weekend with Andrea Molod Soloway, Eva Sebestyen and Gail Oxfeld Kanef. And I’m still in close touch with Dana (Wayne) Gonzales.
