It’s been a while since I’ve last written here, and I want to ease back in by sharing my friends’ amazing language education project and how you can help them to win a $100,000 grant from the state of Nevada.

It’s been a little more than a year since I landed in Chile to participate in Start-Up Chile, a groundbreaking program sponsored by Chile’s Ministry of Economy.
Congratulations to the 154 teams recently selected for the next round of Start-Up Chile! You are in for an amazing entrepreneurial adventure.

My impressions of life in America, after 1.5 years on foreign soil: Public bathrooms are so clean!
