Borba, Scott
Borba, Scott

Scott Vincent Borba '94 co-founded Eyes Lips Face (e.l.f.) Cosmetics in late 2002, branched out to form Borba Nutraceuticals and Cosmaceuticals in 2004, and released his second book, Skintervention, earlier this year. If that isn't enough, he's also a fashion accessory designer, former model, actor and singer. "My dad told me to set out and take a piece of the world with you and that's what I'm trying to do," said Borba. From his own research and in talking with some of the top dermatologists and endocrinologists in the country, Borba knew 90 percent of skin problems started internally. "When I started e.l.f., I flew to Japan and the Asian and Japanese culture turned me on to the idea of internal beauty," said Borba. Upon returning, Borba went on a mission to develop something that would cure skin conditions from the inside out. He knew which ingredients worked best for each skin ailment and reverse engineered the rest. What he came up with was a line of vitamins, waters, serums and creams to help people solve their skin dilemmas. He tirelessly pitched his product and educated the nation on the necessity for his line. After seven years he believes it is finally taking hold. "I'm not about the falsification and overall blatant usage of camouflage...I want to help people solve their challenges so they can be comfortable in their own skin." Borba is a licensed aesthetician and practices at a small office inside the company's Los Angeles headquarters. His client list is full of celebrities, but when launching a new treatment like his $7,000 HD Diamond and Ruby Peel he looks to his fans for feedback. "It's so great," said Borba. "It's like a big family and I think they really appreciate it." The Borba companies are extremely charitable to Covenant House California, a non-profit whose mission is to reach at-risk homeless youth and offer them opportunities to turn their lives around. Borba is the organization's global ambassador. "I feel like I've been put on this earth to help bring people back to Catholic/Christian religions and help kids who have been kicked out of their house," said Borba. Even though Borba has a hectic schedule managing his businesses, writing, launching his singing and acting career and working for CHC, he has energy to spare and a positive attitude. He feels there's nothing that can't be done as long as you put in the effort. "You just have to really, really want something," said Borba. "Map it out A to Z and you must be OK with hearing 'no' and be willing to do the work. You must do the job of an army....everything is possible—it just depends on how much work you want to put into it." Currently he's working on, as he calls it, "revolutionizing" the Borba anti-aging lines and his third book, which "takes one of the best chapters in the second book and expands on it...People expect me to come in and shake things up and I'm not afraid of that," said Borba.

Trevor, Nicole (Haims)

Nicole Trevor Haims ’95 writes, "I received my MFA in Creative Writing (poetry) from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop in 1998 and quickly realized there weren't a lot of jobs for poets, so I started a career in publishing. Working for Wiley Publishing was the best first job in the world. It allowed me to put my creative, editorial, and writing skills to use, and it challenged me to learn emerging technologies. Since 2010 I've worked at Flintridge Preparatory School as the Director of Communications. Also in 2010 I married Jason Trevor, who works at his alma mater, Caltech, as a senior research engineer. We have a pretty wonderful life and currently live in La Canada Flintridge, Calif."

Stowe, John
Stowe, John

Pope Francis has named John Stowe M.Div. ’93, STL ’95, to be the third bishop of Lexington, Kentucky.

Lexington is designated as a mission diocese within the United States: the geographic, demographic and economic characteristics indicate an acute need to evangelize Gospel values and to provide outreach services elevating human dignity and eliminating human suffering. It has 39 priests, and 6 Jesuits work in the diocese.  Bishop-elect John’s vision of his ministry dovetails with the mission of his Alma Mater, JSTB: “reverent and critical service of the faith that does justice” and of Pope Francis’ hope that we become a church of the poor.

John Stowe was born April 15, 1966, in Lorain, Ohio.  He entered the Lady of Consolation Province of the Conventual Franciscans, Mt. St. Francis, IN, and completed collegiate and philosophy studies at St. Louis University, St. Louis, Missouri. His thesis at the Jesuit School of Theology Berkeley was on the first bishop of Mexico: “Juan de Zumárraga, OFM: Bishop and Evangelizer.” During his studies in Berkeley, Fr. John was on the steering committee of the JSTB chapter of Pax Christi, the International Catholic Peace Movement. He led faculty and students to attend the annual Franciscan Desert Experience at the U.S. underground nuclear test site on Shoshone Native American lands in Nevada.  One year the Minister-General of the Friars Minor, Rev. Hermann Schalück, led the group at the site in the Eucharist.

Srabian, Bryan
Bryan Srabian updates the San Francisco Giants' social media followers during Game 3 of the World Series .
Bryan Srabian ’95 is the Giants' director of digital media. The job itself is part creativity, part strategy—and constant vigilance. Come game day, Srabian is a five-tool player, relying on the Giants' Twitter, Facebook, Vine, Instagram, and Snapchat accounts to hype, entertain, and inform fans in real-time. Across the five social networks, Srabian and his colleagues—in the voice of the Giants—speak to more than 3 million followers.
As smartphones and apps increasingly permeate the fan experience and daily life in general, the Giants are considered by many in the sports industry to be among the most social media-savvy clubs in sports. And just like the players on the field, a World Series requires Srabian and colleagues to elevate their own games.
"During the season, you don't focus quite as much on every little thing," Srabian told Mashable. "But between the games, the fans, the ballpark, it seems like every minute there's something interesting happening, and we try to capture all of that."
"All of that" sometimes includes leveraging on-field access to bring exclusive behind-the-scenes content to fans. It sometimes includes showcasing AT&T Park, the Giants' gem of a home field.
And it always includes bringing Giants fans into the fold through retweets, online rallying cries and the content they generate themselves.
