About the Author

Once upon a time, there was a guy named Moky (pronounced like hockey with an "M"). He was relatively privileged, courtesy of his parents, who furnished him with opportunities galore. But most importantly, he was inwardly rich, surrounded by loved ones who looked out for his best interest. And yet, in spite of his happy life, the world was in shambles, a tumultuous state of disarray as the vast majority had settled for less, selling themselves short of their true potential. This created a sense of monotony and angst amid the people, irrespective of their social status. Though he didn't feel guilty for his personal happiness, Moky felt responsible. He wanted to help. He wanted the citizenry to dance with life. This prudent metaphor enabled society to fulfill their calling, and thus, revolutionize the art of living. With the help of his friends and family, Moky set out to inspirit the hearts of those less fortunate. But above all, to serve as a staunch reminder that changing the world was a collective effort. The achievement of one's dream, e.g., a happy marriage or a Super Bowl ring, did not represent the conclusion of struggle for the rest of society. After all, what was the point of being successful when pain and suffering remained constant for many? Happy lives were only worthwhile if their talents were utilized to elevate others.
