Norton Elementary School: Helped create, manage and grow the Norton Elementary School Cougar Chess Club.  This includes hiring and managing paid coaches and volunteers, communicating with parents, organizing end-of-year awards ceremony and soliciting coverage from local news media.  In the 2010 - 2011 school year, the club reached its maximum capacity of 70 students (up from 40 four years prior) and has the distinction of being the largest club at the school.

Started two at-home dad groups: Delaware At-home Dad Association (D.A.D.A.) and the Louisville At-home Dads (L.A.D.s) to unite fathers who have made the choice to be the at-home parent and provide activities for their children.  Organized weekly playgroups and outings, marketed the group and actively sought publicity for creating awareness and fostering membership recruitment. The groups were the subject of feature stories in newspapers and on television.

Developed and co-edited the Broeck Pointe Post, a four-color magazine-sized newsletter for the City of Broeck Pointe, a small city in Louisville, Ky. The publication showcased residents, communicated city business and events and offered home/landscape improvement advise. 

Assist in grant writing for Project Warm a non-profit organization that provides free weatherization education and services for low-income households in Louisville.  I also participated in the yearly Project Warm Blitz, where I was part of a team that weatherized windows and discussed energy saving practices with residents.
