October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education.

From one came many, and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) took root in the belief that sports and an active lifestyle are a pathway to more in life.

Interview With Globetrotting Photographer, Mark Leibowitz


Photographer Mark Leibowitz leads quite a cosmopolitan life: he travels all over the globe photographing fashion models and exotic cities. Open up an issue of Glamour or Conde Nast Traveler, and you’ll likely find Mark’s photographs. His signature prints — praised by the likes of Vanity Fair and New York Magazine — are a lovely fusion of documentary, travel, and fashion. Check out his portfolio here and prepare to be wowed. Recently, I had the opportunity to interview the gifted Mark Leibowitz about his travels: Is there a gadget you can’t live without? A camera. Whether it’s one of my professional cameras, a small point and shoot, or my iPhone, I always have one with me.

It’s not often enough that I get to stand in front of the stage
