"The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else."
e e cummings
I'm a bit of a nomad. I have a passion for technology, travel, photography, and human rights. I try to follow the path less traveled. I've lived in a lot of different places, some small and some big, and all of them have shaped my perspective in unique ways. I've spent most of my adult life in Los Angeles, New York, and now the San Francisco Bay Area. I always try to do the right thing, but don't always succeed. I like to think that empathy is my greatest weapon.
I spend my days working on technology infrastructure, and my nights trying to figure out my place in the universe. You're as likely to find me soldering electrical components or coding, as you are to find me reading or writing about human rights or gender issues. I love learning and I'm passionate about sharing knowledge with others. I'm a bit of a swiss army knife.
I studied international affairs, focusing on issues of rights, justice, and governance at the New School in NYC. I love taking photos. In my spare time, I like to ride my bicycle, surf, and weld. I'm a martial arts student and an amature urban farmer. I'm always looking for a new adventure and ways to make the world a better place for everyone.
