Giving Back to the Community

No matter where I have lived, New York, Chicago, Japan, Australia and now my hometown of Washington DC, I have always found outlets to give back to my community.  Currently, these are the organizations where I donate my time and resources.

My main areas of interest have always been in creative ideas and education, historic preservation, the fine arts and most notably swimming to find cures for cancer.
