About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to exist at the intersection of Fate and Free Will

ABOUT ME

I studied the fall of empires and the aspirations that gave rise to the modern world.

My 2 passions in life right now are boxing and art.

I enjoy sleeping on couches and hardwood floors for the ergonomic benefits.

PHILOSOPHY

Deus sive natura. Amor fati.

Sapere Aude

"You shall become him who you are." - Nietzsche

"May my son study History, for it is the only true philosophy, the only true psychology." -Napoleon Bonaparte

"Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage." - Rainier Maria Rilke

"Move thoughtfully, but fast as well,
from Heaven, through the world, into Hell." - Goethe

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." - Thoreau
