Andre is working as a freelancer for Cambridge BioMarketing, a biomedical communications agency, while preparing to take the MCAT. When he’s too burnt out to study, he enjoys running, swimming, biking and traveling around New England. Nicole lives in San Francisco, where she works in creative digital marketing at a tech advertising company. She spends her free time exploring the happy-hour culture in her new city; riding her new bike; and meeting entrepreneurs, hikers and artists. She recently discovered a strong Brandeis alumni network in Northern California, and has been ecstatic to share her adventures with new friends and former Brandeis LTS colleagues.
