About Me


"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." -Thoreau


Current Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Morocco.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am not Muslim, but I fasted during Ramadan in a town that reaches temperatures of 120 degrees Farenheit in order to get a feel for how my community-- with the exception of families who travel up north during this time-- practices its religious duties.

Teach, Learn, Share

How to make homemade granola bars:

1 cup dates
¼ cup honey
¼ cup peanut butter
1 cup chopped almonds
1½ cups rolled oats
Add-ins: chocolate chips or dried fruit

Enjoy :-)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach you some Moroccan Arabic and a conversational phrases from one the oldest world languages, Berber/Tamazight.

I can sketch a goofy cartoon of you doing something ridiculous, if you like.

I'll join you for karaoke night.

I love to cook! And I'm a happy dishwasher as well.

I know some yoga if you're down for a mini sesh.
