In his own words…

I love fundraising. I love sharing an idea, a cause, or a candidate with a friend or colleague, causing them, in turn, to share in my enthusiasm. I love taking someone through my vision of how supporting a particular organization or person can positively change their life, family, community, and even their country. I might be a hopeless optimist, but I am passionate about making it simpler for someone to “raise their hand” – to do something- anything. I genuinely believe that participation creates a powerful antidote for apathy.
