About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

We left the big city of New York behind to explore Morocco! We both work here as teachers.

We're getting to know the place and we love stumbling upon unexpected treasures.

Our lovely cat, Faye, lives here with us.

PHILOSOPHY

I love helping others and strive to effect a positive net influence on the world around me.

there is way to much injustice out there. in our modern lives, we have blood on our hands that we can't even see. i'm not trying to fix it all, just my tiny piece :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: In the Absence of the Sacred by Jerry Mander, Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee, and other depressing non-fiction. Another all-time favorite is Their Eyes Were Watching God. On the lighter side, I love anything by Roald Dahl, and on the heavier (yet accessible) side, I love this neuroscience book I just read called Proust and the Squid, which was all about the development of reading in the brain.

Music: Everything.... but some favorites are Mr. Bungle, Beck, Fela Kuti, Morphine, Feist, and, of course, the Beatles!
