Spent Labor Day weekend with the family in New York, and it was great to both share memories of our old stomping ground with the kids and experience new locations and sights together
Visiting the birthplace of our civilization and political system on our day trip to Athens…
Incredible vacation on Zakynthos, a tiny Greek island in the Ionian Sea! The most dramatic cliffs, hundreds-of-years-old olive trees, and the bluest water I’ve ever seen…
Just finished co-coaching Sophia’s Spring soccer season with the Jaguars–thanks to my head coach Eric and to Loudoun Soccer for another great season!
From today’s Wall Street Journal…
Happy to share that I have been awarded a one-year Ave Tucker Fellowship at George Washington University’s School of Business.
Named after George Washington University’s Board of Trustee member Avram S. Tucker, this fellowship recognizes faculty members who “displayed good teaching performance, as well as recent scholarly productivity, prospects for continued publications in top outlets, and records of research leadership and mentoring of junior scholars.”
Another great Spring Break trip for the Walter family in Punta Cana (including the mandatory 6am beach walks with Max)
After years of nagging and emotional blackmail by my kids, I finally agreed to get a puppy: A Havanese the kids named Fitzgerald (Fitz). And guess who’s doing the 5am walks with Fitz before work…
Enjoyed a great time skiing with the guys (Jorge Rivera & Mark Clark) in Snowshoe, WV
From the Walter Family!
We had a great time on our annual vacation in the Outer Banks, NC, with friends and family! And we were not the only ones as you can see in the video my friend Greg shot with his drone early one morning about 300 feet out into the ocean…
Another big milestone to celebrate after becoming U.S. citizen a few weeks ago: I was just promoted to Full Professor at the George Washington University School of Business. It has been quite a journey from getting my PhD in 2005, becoming an Assistant Professor in 2006, moving from the West Coast back to the East Coast in 2010, and getting tenure in 2014.
Looking forward to the freedom but also the responsibilities that this new chapter in my career will bring with it…
Congrats to Sophia & Max for a successful swim season with the Stingrays! Max made it to Divisionals (for breast stroke) and Sophia is a 2018 League All Star (for breast stroke)!
Another great summer-night open-air concert with family & friends at Tarara Winery
After living, studying, and working in the United States since I arrived in Philadelphia almost 15 years ago, today, I became a naturalized citizen of this great country!
Sophia’s off to college again–to join this year’s University of Virginia Summer Enrichment Program. For twelve days, she’ll be living in a student dorm and taking classes on UVA’s campus.
Still can’t believe I had to miss Sophia’s 5th grade promotion ceremony for my Oslo trip–especially since she was selected as a student speaker sharing her reflections on her time at elementary school and the transition to middle school.
So proud of all you have accomplished already, Sophia, and of the person you’ve become!
Congratulations to the “Zombie Dragons” for a successful (and almost undefeated!) Spring soccer season. Sophia came back after a few seasons off and played better than ever!
Another Summer swim season is starting with the South Riding Stingrays!
Today, I hosted a workshop on social networks for Sophia’s FUTURA class at Cardinal Ridge Elementary School. And I have to say that I was more nervous before this workshop than about pretty much any other speaking engagement I’ve done over the last few years–but it turned out great, and the students were amazing! Thanks to Mrs. Bowers for inviting me!
