I am the creator of this website and host of the Up Close Podcast, bringing you inspiring stories and introducing you to thought leaders, activists, and social entrepreneurs making a real difference in the world.
I am also the founder and Executive Director of SpreadPeace.org, a 501c3 nonprofit that seeks to inspire and support people who want to help the homeless. Our most well-known campaign is HomelessFriend.org.
I'm Vegan. They say when a person becomes Vegan they step into the flow that leads to Nirvana. I like that. I can't say I've reached Nirvana, but it feels great knowing I'm on a path that brings more joy and is compassionate.
