Terry Brown ’87 learned to ski at Sugarloaf at age 3 when his parents were ski instructors on the mountain. He and his sister, Kristen, joined the Freestyle program and began competing in 1977. By 1979 they were attending winter tutorial sessions at Sugarloaf so they could train daily and his parents helped relocate the program from the basement of the Chapel to the Capricorn Lodge when CVA was born. After placing 1st at the Freestyle Nationals in Winter Park, CO in 1985, Terry had significant knee trouble, and he transferred to Pomfret School in CT, graduating Cum Laude in 1988. He graduated from Georgetown University in 1992 with a major in International Relations and a minor in Italian, and he worked for President George H. W. Bush in the White House Press Office and later as a foreign policy analyst for UN Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick. Terry attended NYU Stern School of Business where he earned an MBA with a double major in International Economics and International Business in 1996. He worked for five years in global marketing with Citibank on Wall Street, in Milan, Italy and then in Los Angeles, CA, before spending a decade working as a professional TV, film and theatre actor and writer.
Terry and his wife Monique moved from California to Maine just before their first son, George, was born in 2008. Since then, they welcomed another son, Luke, and Terry has been working in Portland, where he runs a marketing consulting business, GMEDIA, and a market research firm, Psycholitics, which develops data driven communication strategies for businesses, nonprofits and political organizations. Terry serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Cromwell Center for Disabilities Awareness in Portland and is a Eucharistic Minister at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Falmouth, ME. He loves living on the coast of Maine with his wife and two sons and he especially enjoys bumping into old friends on the slopes at Sugarloaf.
