I am 24, ASU BIS Student, Business and Informatics, I am a 6th year senior. I changed my major about 5 or 6 times, I can't even remember anymore. I am currently working as an IT Director at a local telecommunications company. I live in the Clark Park area of Tempe and frequent Mill and Casey Moore's a lot. I love sports, Football, Baseball and Basketball.

Oh, I despise U of A and Tucson by extension. Go Devils.

I'm 35, live in NE Tempe (University/Price area), got laid off last year, and I had no interest in looking for a job in this market. So I'm currently attending ASU as an accounting major, enjoying it quite a bit.

I'm 40, living in San Diego (Hillcrest neighborhood), born & raised in Mesa, graduated from ASU in History, working in software development. Huge D'backs and Suns fan! Also, supergeek (Star Wars/Star Trek fan, fantasy/fiction reader...can't wait for the next Wheel of Time book, D&D, etc.).

Keepin' tabs on my hometown, hoping it can turn into the world class city that it has the potential to become.

yeah, it's funny that the biggest thing I look forward to about going to San Diego is actually being able to find decent Mexican food... it makes ours look ridiculously bad. I'm taking my girl there on Monday and she has never been. We have a lot planned already but if you have any secrets you want to let me in on, I'm all ears.

And Mama Testa is amazing, been going there since it was new. Yucateca tacos and a ton of tomatillo salsa (seperately) FTW!

Fifth generation! Wow. Is your last name on anything cool? I'm almost a native at 24 years here, and it's quite rare that I've met anyone that's lived here longer.

what kind of software development do you do adm?

Dencity Intro

I’m 40…but I feel like I’m 20 something. I have enjoyed reading your blog very much. I moved here from Chicago first to go to U of A but then fell in love with Phoenix (who would think…93rd best place to live). Worked for a Landscape Architecture/Land Planning firm for a dozen years or so here then decided to go out on my own and start a cool, modern, hip, edgy and urban development firm called Urban Dencity. Came up with some cool plans, awesome business partners and some got great mid-town dirt right off the lightrail…then the roof caved in. Oh well…at least we didn’t start construction. If we did…I’d be living in my Moms garage in Michigan with my wife, two kids and two dogs.

I have lived here since 1990, moved when I was 5. So I am almost a native.

Married, 43, living near DT Tempe, but may be moving near DT Chandler in a month (in escrow).

I knew there were a few Tempe folk here, but not this many. I may have even bumped into a few of you at Casey Moore's.

Just a few restaurants to consider...The Tractor Room (Hillcrest...amazing food, great cocktails), Cafe Chloe (French bistro Downtown), Mister A's (rooftop restaurant in Bankers Hill with views of Balboa Park, the bay, downtown), too many places in the Gaslamp to mention.

I'm 30, live in Coronado, and I'm a native. I went to ASU main, graduated in '03 with a civil engineering degree and currently work for a small engineering firm on the north end limits of the Willo neighborhood (work extremely close to where I was born... St. Joe's). I lived in the Maple-Ash neighborhood for a while when I went to ASU... in a renovated detatched garage about 3-4 blocks from Casey Moore's.

No, our last name is not on anything cool. Though we have some real neat stories that have been passed on about AZ past.

I taught middle school last year and don't mind it at all. That shocks a lot of people. Seniors are fairly easy, but many have already "checked" out.

I wouldn't be surprised if our forefathers crossed pathes at one point in history.
