I am a bright, easygoing, dedicated and committed scholar, activist and musician. I love reading, writing, playing music, biking, and talking endlessly about philosophy, politics, and spirituality. In Tucson, I work with the migrant justice movement, particularly with the humanitarian aid organization No More Deaths, giving food water, and medical aid to migrants crossing the Sonora Desert. I have worked as an independent journalist, writing about the migrant justice movement in Tucson, the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the past and present state of progressive American Jewish activism. I identify strongly with a progressive Judaism focused on justice, 'Tikkun Olam', and an end to oppression. I intend, at some point in the not-too-distant future, to go to graduate school and become a writer, professor and activist. I am also a folk musician, and have performed and recorded many albums combining old-country hymns with new-country psychedelia. I believe very strongly that this world is a beautiful and fragile place, and I hope to do my best, with the life I have been given, to heal, protect and perfect our human community on planet Earth. That being said, I am not always so serious, and love to laugh and play, dance and sing, skip and tap, hide and seek, throw my hands in the air and cackle at the moon!
