How do you identify yourself?

African American 50+ year old gay male.

Tell us about a past experience that inspires the work you do today.

I come from the Midwest, from divorced parents, raised in the United Methodist Church, attending private schools when my mother worked for the public school district as a teacher. I was a modern dancer and lived in NYC during the peak of the AIDS epidemic.

What change do you hope to see in philanthropy?

More inclusiveness in all that people do – not just making sure there are enough gays, women, Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans in the Philanthropy work pool. For me, this is about a change in lifestyle acknowledging the brilliance and range of depth that diversity can give an institution, corporation, and outputs/outcomes.
