When Jason kane from the UCIS at Pitt contacted me to see if we could rally together the European community of Pitt alumni, I jumped at the chance! I had been the local representative of Pitt in the Benelux since my graduation in 1990 and this meant more exposure and a chance to collaborate with fellow alumni throughout Europe using Internet technologies and apps. My specialty!
