This time last year, I did something crazy.

Last summer, I entered into a national charitable competition hosted by DoSomething.org.

The competition was basically a giant clothing and textile drive. That was it. It sounds so simple. Put a couple boxes in your student cen...

I've been working in my new job for 7 days now, meaning for 7 days, I have found myself taking the shuttle from Times Square to Grand Central in the morning and vice versa in the evening. If you've ever been in the NYC subways, you'll know that there is always someone...

One day, several months ago, I was walking through the market on my way home from work.

As usual, I stopped to admire the baked goods (my weakness). I began chatting with the lady behind the table who introduced herself as Alison. I told her I had no money on me then, b...

I’ve been thinking of the ways I want to present service based information on Sundays when I haven’t secured an interview with a world changing org or individual. My first thought jumped to the little guy in all of us – the person who wants to serve but feels as though...

I’ll own it.

For the first time since December 31st 2014, I missed a Wednesday Blog Day. Oops.

Normally, this would have thrown me into a frenzy of stress and anxiety, but this week, I just kind of accepted it. It was kind of my fault anyway.

I had spent two weekends prio...

Some of you may remember the interview I did with Nicole Javorsky in March for #ServiceSunday. We met up in a pastry shop in New York City and talked about her nonprofit organization, Cubs for Coping. You can read more about it by clicking the link here.

To the boy who said it shouldn’t matter,

Thank you, first of all, for getting me worked up. I had no intentions of writing about this, truly, but you have given me all the reason. We were having good conversation – listening to each other’s points and sharing various in...
