About

I had a late nite blog inspiration!  I couldn’t find any of the blog titles I wanted, so I went all shakespeare on yooz.  I founded this organization called freeDimensional, and now I am transitioning out of being its director.  This means I have founder’s syndrome big time!  And I needed a healthy procrastinatory vice … this is it!!

I plan to change the background and quote regularly in order to reflect my ever-changing mood.  Now, here’s me describing myself:

Todd Lester is the founder of freeDimensional and more recently the Creative Resistance Fund. Previously, he served as Communications Officer for Reporters sans frontières in New York City, and Information & Advocacy Manager for the International Rescue Committee in Khartoum, Sudan. Todd holds a Masters of Public Administration from Rutgers University and is a graduate of the Refugee Studies Centre’s Institute on Forced Migration at Oxford University. Todd received a Film Production Diploma from The New School for Social Research where he also serves as adjunct instructor in Media Studies. Todd is active as an advisor to several residencies, artist-led projects and networks – Res Artis, Sangam House, Pirogue Collective of Gorée Institute, Guapamacátaro Interdisciplinary Residency in Art and Ecology, HomeBase Project and the Flux Factory. In 2006, Todd received the Peace Corps Fund Award for his work starting freeDimensional; was named ‘Architect of the Future’ by the Waldzell Institute in 2008; and currently serves as a Senior Fellow at the World Policy Institute.

… and in this pic, I am still holding my breath after crossing the Bridge of Sighs (Puente de los Suspiros) in Lima, Peru.
