Ex-print media publisher & art/design guru turned passionate social activist, semi-pro chef, writer, photographer and artist. I serve as a spokesperson and advocate for U.S. childhood hunger solutions at the federal, state and local level. I'm a Dad, a Husband, and when things get too intense, I flee to Italy to refresh my soul.

1. I am the President/CEO of End Childhood Hunger, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit based in South Florida that advocates for greater utilization of existing federal programs such as school breakfast, school lunch, after-school snacks, after-school dinners, summer meals, and expanded nutrition education. We provide technical guidance, support and assistance to implement and expand these programs and other hunger-related initiatives to stakeholders at the local, regional and state levels.

2. I serve on the board of directors of the South Florida Hunger Coalition. With the support of dozens of community partners, the SFHC coordinates the efforts of more than 80 hunger-related agencies in South Florida. We work to eradicate hunger by acting as a resource and convener for hunger-related initiatives, including the SmmerBreakspot feeding program in Broward County.

3. I served on the Board of Directors (and as President from 2007-2014) of Florida Impact, one of the state’s senior legislative public policy & hunger advocacy organizations. In partnership with Share Our Strength and the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), Impact supports the Florida Partnership to End Childhood Hunger.
