DARIEN — Jon Beery was one of the lucky ones who got a job after graduation. After finishing college at UConn in 2010, the Darien native moved to Boston to work in auditing and consulting for PricewaterhouseCoopers.
But his heart was always somewhere else. On days when it was windy, everyone in the office knew Beery would be coming in late or leaving early to hit the waves kiteboarding at beaches in the area. Then one day in 2014, after a bonus cleared, he put in his two weeks notice and left to work at a kiteboarding school in North Carolina.
