Jack Shaw '90

May 2022

Since so many of us have travel on our minds, Jack would like us to know that his company, Epic Europe, was once again (for the 11th year running) named Condé Nast Traveler’s Switzerland and Alps specialist!

As we all know, the pandemic was not kind to the travel industry, but Jack made the best of it. He took advantage of a two-year shutdown by completely renovating and restoring a 200-year-old farmhouse in the Val Ferret of Switzerland. Using the skills he first learned from Mr. Brune, then honed during our senior project, he painstakingly dismantled, cleaned, re-milled and reinstalled every piece of wood, from floors, beams, wall panels, and ceilings back into the house! He moved in last fall and looks forward to welcoming any friends who find themselves in that corner of the Alps!
