About Me


break the 50 countries mark this year


I suppose the one thing I love to do most of all is travel, last year I saw my 6th continent and 40th country, really I just want to see new cultures, people and places.
I'm an outgoing but relaxed person and chances are if your reading this i'll be travelling with my friend arjun who is as well.


Where do I start, I love John Paul Sartre for his concept of bad faith but recently I love the meta-ethical relativism put forward by Gilbert Harman.


Chess, Chinese Chess, Philosophy, Dystopic cinema and literature and swimming.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lots of things, its hard. The two top things i guess were both in columbia, either seeing the Columbian army march to its painted black by the stones or seeing the ipiales church.
That said the most amazing thing i've done is that i'm currently teaching about 900 students at a primary school english and the sense of worth from doing such a thing is staggering.
