Fred Glick

This bio needs an update! Donna and Fred have been living and working in Cairo since 2000. On November 25, 2004, Thandi was born! In 2005 Fred, Donna, & Thandy moved to London. March 2008 they have moved back to South Africa.

fred in color "Right now, I work for an Indian NGO (like a not-for-profit) that does health care in the slums.  I do fundraising/promotional stuff mostly, including a lot of writing:  everything from grant proposals to press releases to speeches.

I've taught drama, worked for the UN managing a refugee feeding project, taught woodworking in a rural African school, done some consulting as a writer and editor, etc. Before I left the states I was an arts manager, worked for Lar Lubovitch and before that Laura Dean (both modern choreographers/companies based in NYC)."

Fred will be moving with his wife, Donna Bryson (an Associate Press new editor), from India to Cairo very soon!

But all the feelings of superiority aside, you're beginning to feel the need for something, well, different.
