claremont mckenna college's magazine published a feature article this month about me and philanthro productions, my non-profit event production company headquarted in los angeles. we now sit on the board of directors, but the other former co-president austin kiessig and i have been involved since philantho's founding in 2007, and we've seen tremendous growth thanks to the tireless efforts and passionate commitment of our all-volunteer staff. austin and i are both CMC alums, and over the years, our staff has been packed with many other alumni of the claremont colleges.
