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.
