Welcome!

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.

The word "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).

The 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 neighborhood; and investing. Sometimes the categories overlap.

Serving the ecclesia has to do with fulfillling my function as a member of the body of Christ.

Producing media 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.
I 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
My 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.

IV. INVESTING
I have created a company, Homewood Capital Partners LLC, to pool money for investing in Homewood real estate. For more info, write the email address below.

V. OTHER
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.  

I am 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!
