A Brief Stint on The Sopranos (and in the NY Times)

Very nice to have a feature story in the NY Times that includes our work at Mahiga Hope High School. Framed around my frequent travels and my role as that idiot narcoleptic Aaron Arkaway in The Sopranos, it's already bringing some nice attention to the school effort.

Lots going on in Kenya at Mahiga Hope High School. Check out this new photo from Greg Elsner of the finished classroom walls. More info at and on The Nobelity Project FB page:

About Me

My photo
People know me from different things I've done, and often seem to remember me from whatever I was doing when our paths first crossed. If you first saw me on television with Harry Anderson or doing stand-up comedy, you may be disappointed in my current level of funny. On the other hand, if you first saw me as that idiot narcoleptic guy in The Sopranos, I could really use a nap, so I'm still playing that part well. The last few years have been occupied by making three feature docs, Nobelity, One Peace at a Time, and Building Hope. All three were produced by our education and action nonprofit, The Nobelity Project ( I've also written ten books of fiction and nonfiction, most recently the NY Times bestseller, The Tao of Willie, co-authored with the very awesome Willie Nelson.
