“I joined Friends Forever because I felt it was an organization that had the potential to change lives in communities where conflict is a way of life. I had first-hand experience and exposure to this, working in Northern Ireland for over 10 years, and starting a software company there. You could see the negative, and even damaging effects that sectarian conflict had on the whole environment, for families, for the government, and in business operations and the economy. In addition to the activities here in America, I also concurrently joined the board of FF Europe, in hopes of having a more directed impact on Northern Ireland in particular. I was attracted by Friends Forever's potential to help inform, enlighten and provide positive alternatives to youth who may not get that exposure in their home environments. I have been gratified to see real-world change, through these young people, based on the programs that we run.”
