About Me

These days I mostly read books. When I'm not doing that, I play music and travel. I'm a boxer too. I love cycling and dislike cars. I often cook vegetarian food. I do a lot of political stuff. I just got a tattoo.

I like laughing. I get annoyed by greed, but that just makes me appreciate all the good things more. My primary goal is to experience the highlights of life without doing myself any lasting damage.


I love learning languages. It's good brain excercise. You also get to talk to a whole new range of people.

Music is the most important thing to me. I started playing guitar when I was 12. I must admit that other priorities have now taken over.

I cook, mainly indian vegetarian food at the moment. If you've got any recipes to teach I'd love to help out.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I fed a banana to a small monkey standing on the wall of my room in the Amazon, which was originally chasing a tarantula.
