About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Adventure, always.

ABOUT ME

I'm a social worker by day but I only view that as a job and not a passion or career. I'm doing some good in the world at least. I think so, anyway!

These times require hustling to make a living which means working in anything to survive. I'm passionate about international politics and affairs so I hope to be more involved in a career which pertains to those subject areas.

I love literature and art, politics, salsa dancing, wine, gatherings, and learning about cultures, languages etc. I've had really great experiences on couchsurfing and hope to continue with it.

PHILOSOPHY

I hold to no religion or creed,
am neither Eastern nor Western,
Muslim or infidel,
Zoroastrian, Christian, Jew or Gentile,
I come from neither land nor sea,
am not related to those above or below,
was not born nearby or faraway,
do not live either in Paradise or on this Earth,
claim descent not from Adam and Eve or the Angels above,
I transcend body and soul.
My home is beyond place and name.
It is with the beloved, in a space beyond space,
I embrace all and am part of all.

-Rumi
