Founder, The Nobelity Project
Writer and filmmaker Turk Pipkin is the director of three feature documentaries about global problems and solutions. His latest film, Building Hope, tells the story of The Nobelity Project partnering with a rural Kenyan community to build the area's first high school. Turk is also the author of ten works of fiction and nonfiction, including the NY Times bestseller, The Tao of Willie, co-authored with Willie Nelson. As an actor, Turk appeared in the film Friday Night Lights, The Alamo and Scanner Darkly, and played that idiot narcoleptic guy in HBO's The Sopranos. And he shoots a lot of photos.
