My Journey

I'm not Handicapped, I'm Handicapable.
(and no i didnt get that from due date lol)

I left home and drove from nj to california in search of an independent life and safe access to my medicine* so i can live. It's been an interesting journey, lots of ups, lots of downs, and even though I am now weaker than ever...nothing will ever stop me from living my dream, regardless of how long I get to live.

Life is too precious and short to waste time. And I'm Ready.

The three videos below are before and after i left nj, an interview with the Washington Post during my road trip, some audition, and one other one hahaha idk i didnt set up the web site, im kinda lost there :P below that are blog entries! thank you!

Feel free to contact me at all times:

Help to save Mikey's life

As you know, Mikey has always been able to smile through the pain, no matter what, until recently. The pain in his stomach is now worse than ever and has led to an inability to eat, causing rapid weight loss. At 6'1", he's a meager 75 lbs and dropping fast. It's getting more difficult for Mikey to smile through the pain and fear.

One of the only places where Mikey can get help is the MAYO clinic in Minnesota. There, a team of specialized doctors will work together to figure out how his illnesses affect each other and can be treated to restore health and balance to his body so he can keep living his incredible life.

All of this obviously comes with a large amount of costs, which can only be covered with the help and donations of as many people as possible – even if it's just a dollar. Please click on one of the two following links to access the crowd funding campaigns that will help Mikey get better. Thank you!


I know its been a while! However life is always moving faster than ever! And now tomorrow is my birthday....the quarter century mark, jeez i'm old. Birthdays are always a good time to look back and sum it all up. I've kinda been summing it up the past week leading up to it because there is so much to digest! I look back and think about my mistakes, believe me, i have made a lot. I think about friends, the one's i have made, and the ones i have lost...i have made wayy more :) And i think about my health, but only for a second because my body is pissed hahaha but mostly i think about the last few months.... The most beautiful time in my life (besides being deep in love..<3).

All i did was follow my heart. And all that followed was love. Love from friends, love from family, love from the world, and it solidified a love within myself, for myself, to be stronger. I still don't know what to do with my life, this website or really anything haha, but i like it! I kinda just go on signs from the Universe. I make some plans for future dates, but for the most part trust within the signs that pull me every day, they have always directed me in the right place.

I have many emails and facebook messages that i am getting to, however I'm still behind (sorry!!) its kinda tough to do it all solo, but ill get there!!!! Its incredible to me that so many people are showing so much love and support, its really as if the world is my family...but actually since i am Egyptian, Italian, Greek, french, Lebanese and Ethiopian, i guess the world is kinda like my family haha :)

I have a missed call from Bergen Community College, hopefully we get in touch soon! And there are some new ideas for my future, like... a trip to Japan, Alaska, Hawaii, back across America for various things, and the one i am most excited about...a cross South America road trip, which will require lots of van adjustments, like raising it up (way up), stronger suspention, huge wheels and tires, and a superchrger and chip. Money is required for all of this, where am i gonna find it...idk, but life's too short, so im gonna figure it out. I only have one life to live my dreams, so I'm making this life count!!!

Thank you for joining me through the greatest and most beautiful part of my life ever :)
I love you all for your love and support
