"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered." -- Nelson Mandela
I have been very fortunate in my life to see many new places -- both geographical and ideological.
I have had the chance to visit over 30 countries and live in 5 (Canada, Costa Rica, Egypt, Honduras, and the USA). I have made friends with corporate executives, university professors, street kids, and garbage collectors. I have shared a bedroom with a nesting hen in Tanzania and stayed at a villa on the Pacific Ocean. I have spent time in working in a garbage dump in the Dominican Republic and on Capital Hill in Washington, DC. I have lived in a town of 1,000 people in rural Western New York State and in the metro Cairo area of about 20 million. I have worked at Houghton College, Penn State University, Cornell University, and Northeastern University. I have gone to school at Houghton and Penn State.
And I have learned... my have I learned!
And I continue to learn! To learn about life, people, culture, purpose, injustice, and opportunities.
It is my desire to share what I have learned with those around me and to learn alongside of them.
Please, take a look around my site, learn more about me, and feel free to get in contact.
May we continue to learn and grow together!
