BU Experience

MET AD648 is my third class on the road to an MS in Project Management.  My previous two classes were 632 Intro to Financial Concepts and 648 Project Management.  With an expected graduation date in May 2012 I will have my hands full with Charlie, work and class.


Now For The Important Stuff

After 5 years of constant wooing Jessica finally succumbed to my charms and we were married in November 2009.  Jessica is an excellent cook and I have the belly to prove it. 

And for our first anniversary present my wife and I received this little bundle of fun, Charles Bear Telesmanich.  He is a cutie but I must admit I am a little jealous; he already has more hair than his old man.  Hopefully he will be able to start helping me shovel snow really soon

About Mr. T

About Mr. T
Hi Folks, my name is Jim Telesmanich and I am from Northern New Jersey.  I thought I would tell you everything to introduce myself.  In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog... When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out... But the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life. 

Ok so not really all about me but from a great movie, can anyone figure out what movie it is from and which character spoke those lines? Lets see some guesses in the comments section.

I really am from Northern New Jersey and work as a management consultant for IMS Health.  My current position is a Principal, which is really just a glorified project manager with a revenue target.  We work with U.S. pharmaceutical manufacturers to improve management and compliance of their commercial and government contracting operations.  Prior to this life I was a plant accountant for the company that invented bubble wrap, Sealed Air Corp. 

I graduate from Stanford University in 2000 with a degree in economics.  This winter in Northern New Jersey has me longing for the sunny days in Palo Alto, CA.  I also played football during my time at Stanford and was a member of Stanford’s 2000 Rose Bowl team, we ended up losing to Wisconsin, but it was an amazing experience.  This past football season was great, as I took great pride in watching Andrew Luck, Jim Harbaugh and the Stanford Cardinal dismantle Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl. (And yes it is “Cardinal” not “CardinalS”.
