I was a student on the Pitzer Program in the fall of '95. I was at the Balkot program house off the road to Bhaktapur, and lived with a family in Sirutar. At the time, my Nepali brother that I lived with was in his late teens, the youngest of six children. Over the course of the last 15 years, I've returned to Nepal five times as a volunteer, working in tourism, teaching English, exploring, and most recently as a filmmaker. I even made an appearance as a goon in a Nepali film called Surakshya, which means "Protection."
