He took a leave of absence to set out on a career in community development and advocacy. This decision led him on a very active path that combined my business expertise with a social agenda – from within the decrepit inner-city of Washington, DC to the hallowed halls of Congress.  Community-Vision Partners (C-VP) is the culmination of 25 years of his organizing and social enterprise work.
