About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"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

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.
