Briefly describe the program, volunteer work, or partnerships you or your organization may offer.
I’m not quite sure what I offer — I have no idea how or if any of my business experience can help a young person but I’ve also had a lot of interns over the years and feel like they’ve been very positive experiences for all.

I don’t see marketing, public awareness/communications and design or sustainability/corporate responsibility as categories above — And most of my experience has been around those areas.

The bulk of my work as a creative director professionally, and as a author now, writing has back bone to much of my work.
