Biography

Hi. I'm Doug. Some call me DK, just don't call me "Mr. Knight" - I feel 100 years old when that happens. I'm a child of the 70s and 80s who grew up in New England and now calls Washington, DC home... I love music, sports, and most of all having fun with family and friends. Cheers! ~DK

The KEYone is HERE.

I waited. Patience. I took the hits from friends and family alike… saying, You STILL have a Blackberry? They still make phones? And you’re waiting for a newer version?!? Weirdo. Welp, jokes on you people… this kid’s got the KEYone. Thanks Blackberry. We’re friends again. ~DK

Election 2016: So What Happened?

Today is the 9th of November, and there are many many “what happened?” conversations starting around tables, office break rooms, and diners. Let me first say this: we have a new President-Elect, Donald Trump. He won the Electoral College and IS the President-Elect. He will be the 45th President of the United States. THE President. …

Enough “#Pray For ___” and More “#Action For___”

I’m so sick of this. Our communities are in a cycle of “pray for’s” and I’m tired of it. Here’s how it goes: Some tragedy occurs in a community and it elevated to a nation story. We collectively pain over the situation, look to for ways to help/cope/share. A “#Pray For ___ ” hashtag starts …

A Mass Shooting…Again.

Once again, our communities are about to proceed down the road of discussing guns, gun laws, reform of guns policy, the Second Amendment… and then end up with a whole lot of nothing. The cynic in us all immediately goes to this sensibility, but that cynic is also that part of you that can remember. …

Public Policy and Community

It is a consistent adage that there is no “perfect” public policy.

Coming Soon… A New Movement in Community Activation

I know, I know… that title sounds like a terrible movie hype preview (with that guy with the “in a world” voice), but I am excited to launch a new venture here soon. It will be something that combines the best of what is… with the best of what can be. Too often, our communities …
