Thanks for stopping by

This is a place to capture some of my writing about various things that interest me. Professionally, my passion is for advising incredibly talented young adults, helping connect them to international academic and service opportunities. I am lucky enough to have a job at NYU Abu Dhabi where I do exactly that as director of global awards. Previously, I worked at my alma mater, Grinnell College, for 15 years, building the college’s scholarship advising system, creating the Grinnell Corps, and--best of all--mentoring 10 of the best young people on the planet through the Posse Foundation. On a personal level, my daughters and I travel the world as much as we can, and I enjoy racing triathlons. I’m also a returned Peace Corps volunteer (Suriname, 1995-97), a living kidney donor, and the co-author of four editions of the book Volunteer Vacations. If you really want to make me happy, buy me a donut, take me to a UNC basketball game, watch Survivor with me, or put on some New Orleans jazz.
