If you’d like to know a little more about yours truly, you can see my interview today in The Displaced Nation. It seems that they are letting me in – thank goodness!

The founders of The Displaced Nation share a passion for what they call the “displaced life” of global residency and travel. They offer plenty of navigation tips, as well as food for thought, served with a dollop of humor. A great site!

Seems like a great moment to highlight some of the interviews that have appeared on how-matters.org:

Real Impact with Saeed Wame (Founder of Namwera AIDS Coordinating Committee in Malawi)

The Curious Aid Worker: Storytelling with Marc Maxson Part 1 & Part II (Director of the GlobalGiving’s Storytelling Project)

Behind the Barricades, There Is Happiness (Richard Moore, Founder of Children in Crossfire, Ireland)
