Ke hoole okunyangadgala, na ki ifala komukodhi omunene.
(Ovambo Proverb: Namibia)
-This proverb cautions those who wander around the world aimlessly, as it can lead to disaster. In this case -the claws of a hawk! Live with passion and purpose. Nourish what inspires you -and run with it.

Kazana kulima, vyakupewa havitoshelezi.
(Bena Proverb: Tanzania)
-Preserve your life with farming, because handouts will not satisfy you. There is so much to be said about this simple phrase and sustainable community development.

    Recent News.

    Greetings Readers:

    I've been incredibly busy with grad school in NYC to even begin to think about posting and following up with life post-Namibia. But I'd like to direct your attention to a wonderful"Prairie Fire" article that my ranch neighbor and co-Namibia traveler, Sarah Sortum, created to demonstrate the challenges of staying on the land and the ecological issues, and what landowners are doing to take initiative collectively to hopefully direct things in a new direction. Sarah is doing an outstanding job leading this effort back home, and she deserves a huge shout-out for a great article. I'm truly excited about the collective effort and can't wait to return to the land soon and help out more directly in the process.


    Also, I didn't realize that a photo familiar to many of the long haul followers was selected as a National Geographic Photo of the Day and taken in Namibia's Etosha National Park after conducting a game count on a local concession with World Wildlife Fund staff. A wonderful new friend in Manhattan contacted me about having a very large print of this photo being displayed in her Financial District apartment, and I had no idea what she was talking about when she first asked about the photo and where it ended up. Quick google research brought about a wonderful surprise.


    I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

    Grad School News

    Greetings Friends, Family, and Readers:

    I want to announce that I will be attending Columbia University's School of International and Public Administration to work on a Masters in Public Administration in Environmental Science and Policy. I've accepted the offer officially as of yesterday and I'm very excited about what awaits me in New York City. The competition was tough and I was accepted before the final deadline, so it makes me feel good that Columbia selected me so early in the process.

    Thank-you so much everyone who has supported me in the process, both abroad in Namibia and back home in the States.
