It's hard to know where to begin. I've been an activist my whole life.
My senior year of high school, I founded and edited an underground newspaper, in what became something of a microcosmic revolution on campus.
At New York University, I earned BA degrees in History and English, and a Certificate in Nongovernmental Organizations, in three years.
After college, I was living in Harlem, beginning to make my way as a writer and peaceful revolutionary, when I learned that my dad was sick.
This was our last photo together.
This loss brought about tremendous personal growth, ultimately leading me deep into the Amazon on a journey of self-discovery.
After Peru, I moved to Lake County in Northern California, and became a grassroots organizer in the Transition Towns movement for community resilience.
