I had the pleasure of introducing Dr. Samantha Nutt, founder of War Child, an incredible charity that enters into war torn areas to help child soldiers and victims of war. Her work is incredible; she puts her life on the line to save hundreds and thousands. She was the keynote speaker at a conference that I emceed. The amount of knowledge she has is ridiculous...go look up Coltan and the conflict surrounding it, it'll make you feel ashamed for petty concerns and frivolous purchases.

My father Walter Garrett. I was born when he was 21. He went back to school at night to get a degree, modelled diplomacy and work ethic and demonstrated love despite betrayal. My pa shared his love of the outdoors with marathon canoe trips and cross country skiing. He taught me about all the world's religions and that they all have value. He is my inspiration.
