Elwin Green here. I created this website to
inform people about my activities, especially since leaving my job
as an energy reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"retirement," like the term "non-profit," gives me the willies. I want
to die working, creating value and getting paid to do so (not
everything has to produce money, but something has to).
things that I want to spend the rest of my life doing tend to fall
into four categories: serving the ecclesia; producing
media; serving my
investing. Sometimes the categories overlap.
Serving the ecclesia has to do with fulfillling my function as a member of the body of Christ.
will involve, in the short term, producing a website, books, short
films and videos. In the long term, I intend to produce documentaries
and/or television and/or feature films.
I serve my neighborhood - Homewood, in Pittsburgh's East End - by participating in projects to make it better.
And of course investing is just working to produce wealthbuilding rates of return on capital.

I. SERVING THE ECCLESIA.
have created a website to help people see that there is more to life in
Christ than going to church. As of 3/1/11, it is only one page,
but it will grow. The address is www.dumasani.net.
II. PRODUCING MEDIA
website, "Homewood Nation," is home to the Homewood 100 initiative - an
attempt to answer the question, "What would 100 percent coverage of a
neighborhood look like?" Beyond that, I have two books and two short
films in development. Among other projects.
III. SERVING MY NEIGHBORHOOD
I sit on various boards and committees working to improve Homewood.
have created a company, Homewood Capital Partners LLC, to pool money
for investing in Homewood real estate. For more info, write the email
I recently enrolled as an
associate with Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. My focus will be helping
companies to make Pre-Paid Legal Services memberships available as
an employee benefit, without cost to the company.
already working with others on some of these things; all of them are
open for the participation of others. If you see something here that
you might want to be part of, or that you simply want to know more
about, email me: elwin(at)elwingreen(dot)com - thanks!
