About Me

I work with many of the top Non-Profit brands in the US, helping them launch successful PSA campaigns that bring widespread awareness of their cause. I also love to take part directly in running and biking campaigns. I have known the the founders of Lens On Life all my life, they are like brothers to me and I am so impressed with their hard work and dedication year after year. It was a thrill to be asked to do this bike ride to raise funds that will help the Lens on Life mission continue and thrive.

More Info

We will be riding over 100 miles in one day from NYC to Philadelphia. Why? We are raising money for Lens on Life Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports photography and computer literacy training for at-risk youth around the world. Lens on Life has taught photography and computer skills to hundreds of youth in the DR Congo, Zaatari refugee camp and Iraq, providing an outlet for self expression and  qualifications to enter the global job market.  

The impact of COVID-19 has hit Lens on Life hard. We have had to postpone various fundraising activities and reroute funds to support COVID-19 health and safety response. Funding for teachers and crucial equipment is at risk. We need your support to continue payroll for teachers during and after the crisis and support continued programming for the vulnerable youth in our schools.
