In January of 2004 he held his first fundraiser and by August was living in Darfur, Sudan installing water systems for victims of the government-supported genocide.

When Doc returned home in 2005, the haunting memories of what he had seen in Darfur drove him to continue ...

He takes you on an emotional journey to communities whose living conditions are unimaginable to most of us. His ability share his vision, passion, commitment and excitement for his global mission has ignited a flame of passion in our membership as well.

Doc delivers a very inspiring story of how one person can make a difference. His story covers many continents and tragedies with a central and simple theme of providing safe water. In today's complex world, he takes you back to the basics and points out that sometimes the simplest solutions provide the best outcome. His story is transferable to many aspects of life where mission, passion and service intersect. While his story creates impact at the highest level, you leave inspired to make a difference as well.
