enable a transition to a more sustainable world, and have fun doing so!
My passion is sustainability, and I am trying to learn as much about all its different social, political, economic, agricultural, health, and building aspects as possible. So last year, I spent my time traveling around from community to community and farm to farm across the United States and United Kingdom soaking up as much knowledge as I could. But this year, I have lived in Sweden, attending the Youth Initiative Program in Jarna, and learning about social entrepreneurship. During my travels, I realized that having the passion and energy to do something is not always enough... so this year has been about developing the skills I need to go back out and engage the world in a meaningful way. I love life, and I love truth!
I believe in Life, Beauty, Complexity, Nature, and Interrelationships between all things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have been extremely fortunate so far, and have had an amazing life. My time herding goats and sheep in Morocco was extremely influential. I had the opportunity and time to have several epiphanies, and was able to get my life back on track.
Interestingly, another pivotal moment in my life was when I had an accident and lost my memory for a short while at the age of 19. It was weird and wonderful to experience life to not know many details about myself.
