I Got Engaged!

I’m very pleased to share with you all that three days ago, on my birthday, with a little help from the incredibly heroic and very dear New York Times columnist Nick Kristof, (see above), I proposed to my partner Steph and she said “yes.”

For the whole story, visit my official website here.

I’ve blogged twice before — here and here — about the book Nick co-authored with his wife Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Certainly one of most important books ever written, it has inspired a television miniseries, a Facebook game, and a movement that I’m now very proud to be a part of as Lead for Religious Outreach.
