Bio

For as long as i can remember, i have always gravitated towards things like storytelling, poetry, and philosophy.

Essentially, anything which encourages us to see the world in a different way - or to feel something we may never have felt before. 

I am also extremely passionate about fine art.

And, being predominately self educated, take a lot of personal inspiration from the Renaissance Ideal of being a Polymath.

As such, i work across many different fields - from Fiction and Poetry; to Philosophy, Drawing, Photography, Science, Psychology and more.

But, in all mediums, my goal remains the same

To tell stories

To express emotion in it's purest form

To bring philosophy to a new audience

And to create work which is timeless.
