He was a member of the university-level LGBT Steering Committee, as well as on the planning committee for the first three Lavender Graduation ceremonies. He was also a member of the Judicial Committee and the Senior Fund. He chaired a taskforce to integrate GS students into the programs of the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

After graduating, he co-founded the Advocates for the Arts Initiative with Barry Weinberg. He is a member of GS's Recent Alumni Leadership Committee. In the real world, he's the head of Communications for Citizens Union, a progressive "good government" group.[1] Years of tangling with Columbia's administration prepared him well for dealing with New York City politics.
