Mike McCurry


Mike McCurry was President Clinton's press secretary for nearly four years. After leaving the brutal arena of politics, he wanted to stay in touch with the ideals which lead him to Washington in the first place. A lifelong church goer, he was encouraged to study theology at a seminary. Today, he's one of many former political leaders who are taking this idealistic path,  trying to bridge the ethics of religion with the dialog in DC politics. This will hopefully help address issues which many churches champion, like global poverty and human rights. Thanks to art director, Jenny Mazer of National Journal, for the opportunity to create this portrait.
