About Me

I have more than three decades of experience in the nonprofit sector, most recently as executive director at Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago. I designed and conducted programs and training courses on rights, law, and policy. Previously I conducted human relations and interfaith programming and training for the National Conference of Christians and Jews. I have presented at workshops and conferences across the United States, in Europe, Israel, and Latin America.

As a consultant, I’ve worked with nonprofits and universities to help them improve instruction and strengthen processes so they can focus on what matters most to them and their constituents. I also focus program creation, nonprofit management, and governance.  I help organizations design and build programs and strengthen their processes so they can reach their goals more effectively.

I am a native of Onondaga County, New York, and I’m a graduate of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I’ve also received training at the NTL Institute. I serve on the Illinois Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service and the Advisory Board of the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law. My wife and I live in Evanston, Illinois.
