A Memorable Moment of Generosity:
Riding my bike on the streets of New York, I was exhausted
and I went to park my bike next to a parking meter. Just as I
was about to take off my cycling shoes, I see this guy pull
a chair behind me so I sit down and comfortably take off my
shoes. He had a little table to sell some sunglasses, but in
our brief yet powerful conversation, he told me that he was
"free", unencumbered by the things of life. He was free to be
who he was, free to be compassionate.

By far, my favorite movie is Blue Diamond, because it exemplifies
the spirit of a true warrior.
The Glass Bead Game by Herman Hesse is my favorite book, and
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Rapture is probably my favorite
Most Powerful Volunteer Experience:
In early 2007, a couple of us went to on a rather unexpected
mission to capture the stories of some very accomplished people.
We had no time on the agenda, no resources, and on equipment.
Yet by the end of four days, we had captured interviews with
30 people, stayed up all night to produce a 7-minute collage
that moved everyone to tears. It was an unforgettable experience.
