I'm bringing #safarisaturdays back to share a few more of my pictures from South Africa. This beautiful white rhino came running out of nowhere, and it was awesome to have him look directly into my lens (even if rhinos have terrible eyesight, and so he probably saw far less of me than I did of him ). #safari#southafrica#rhino#photooftheday
Only one of us has a body optimized to execute killer attacks at lightning speeds in deep blue waters. (Hint: it's not me). 🤗 (I'm also entirely unsure what stroke I am attempting here in order to keep up, but I do know it ain't pretty. ) #summeradventures#borabora#swimmingwithsharks
I used my time here on Bora Bora to record some raw footage for a possible Jaws reboot. Turn on the sound for maximum effect. (And yes, that is a blacktip reef shark giving me a body check at the 0.09 mark. No biggie). Fun times! #snorkelingspielberg#summeradventures#gopro
Anyone who survives 20 (!) years of being in a marriage with me deserves a vacation in Bora Bora (that's a decade for every Bora, for those of you interested in the math behind this 🤓). Love ya, babe! Happy anniversary.
I'm back in the US by now, but have plenty of photos to share from my South African adventures. Here are a few from when I stared down a group of hippos. They can run with a speed of 40 km/hour and are the deadliest among the mammals on the continent but, hey, I was drinking my hot chocolate so I was not to be disturbed. #southafrica#safari#fortunefavorsthebrave
Elephants, elephants, and more elephants. These were part of the largest herd I've ever seen -- easily one hundred. We were so lucky to run into them. I love how they protect the smallest members of their families while on the move. And how big they can become -- don't miss the one in the background. 🙄 #southafrica#safari#photooftheday
I figured that if I sit on top of a rocky hill in the middle of a game reserve in a shiny silvery jacket at dusk, then the lions, leopards, hyenas and other predators will just walk in front of my camera. What could go wrong? #foolproofplans#southafrica#safari P.S. Happy Fourth of July everyone!
... And that's a wrap on the Summer Venture in Management Program 2017! I'm already missing all the students' beautiful faces -- including this one, which belongs to Aku Acquaye (@kokoflavoured), who single-handedly helped me raise my selfie game. #Harvard#SVMP#selfie#onlytook30takes

The "Summer Venture in Management Program" is halfway, and we are having a blast! SVMP is a program for rising college seniors from all kinds of minority backgrounds, who get to experience what it feels like to be an MBA student at the Harvard Business School for one (very full) week. It's the best thing we do all year. And this year, we made it twice as big, so we're also having twice the fun. #HarvardHBS#SVMP#lookatallthosebeautifulfaces#ihavethebestjobintheworld ( by @kev.wolf)
Traveled to NYC today to teach at the @UnitedNations, for a group consisting of UNDP Resident Representatives -- the courageous people who risk it all to run local divisions of UN agencies in faraway places, all in an effort to do big things like reduce poverty, promote equality, and battle climate change. I guess this means that if they, say, end world hunger, I can take all the credit? Seriously -- quite an honor and a privilege! (Alternative caption: Me, trying to look important by holding a deflated soccer ball, amid really important people ). Shout-outs to @mariamwkakkar and @paelin.chen for making it all possible.
#TBT To that time when I received my honorary degree from Harvard University ("Universitas Harvardiana Cantabrigiae"), and for a full five seconds regretted not studying Latin in school (until I saw that the accompanying letter provided a full translation ). I never believed this until it actually happened, but every professor who makes tenure gets one of these. Yet another reason why this place is the coolest. #youknowwhatsgoingtokeepmewarm? #thatsrightthosedegrees#kanyesaiditbest
I ventured outside the classroom today, and headed straight for @HarvardHBS's studio, to teach my case on @therock in one of our HBX online programs. It's really cool -- we professors look at a wall with dozens of people dialing in from all over the world who can participate using their laptop cameras. They get to see us, and they follow our writing on the "boards" (which are actually smart screens). Within a few minutes, you forget it's not a real classroom! Gotta love technology.
Whenever, wherever. We're meant to be together.

... And that's a wrap on the "Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports" 2017 program! What an incredible group of people. A big THANK YOU to all the participants who worked and played hard to make the most of our four days together (or, in the words of one legendary participant, to get to that coveted 100% download level ). I've never been happier to have the job I have. More videos and photos to come soon! #Harvard#BEMS ( by the brilliant @kev.wolf)
That moment when the legendary @llcoolj and his amazing COO @claudinejoseph can't stop laughing at your first (failed) attempt at rapping, and you can only hope no one will ever see this video. Good times.
