About Me

I recently dropped everything for a job in Tokyo, but that turned out to be less than I had hoped for. As I write this I'm in Sydney with my sister. I'm heading to the Philippines next, with a few days in Singapore first. I'm working on some business ideas, doing a bit of teaching online and scraping by for now. This time next year I'll be a millionaire.

If you're reading this, then perhaps we will meet soon. I look forward to it!

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite composer is Ligeti and I regularly listen to Dhrupad. Don't worry if that means nothing to you.

My favourite film is Fanny and Alexander by Ingmar Bergman. It's 5 hours long but edge-of-seat gripping from start to finish.

I don't read a lot of fiction, but I read loads of blogs, mostly on economics. I'm really into cryptocurrency Austrian economics and stuff like that.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Teach, Learn, Share

You're pronouncing 'pokemon' incorrectly. 'Poke' is a contraction of 'pocket', as in 'pocket monster'. There's nothing 'pokey' about it!
