About Me


To complete my first experience of around the world travel


I have recently graduated from University and have decided to see the sights that I have thus far only gazed at in awe in photos. I am passionate about the subjects of science, history and psychology and enjoy discussing such topics. Personality-wise, I am an ambitious, polite, conscientious person who wants to achieve much in my lifetime.


Ever since I discovered Darwin's teachings of natural selection I have been inclined to view life as a competition between humans whose actions are entirely related to the replication of their genes. In light of natural selection, human behavior is no more complex than that of any other species. I am an atheist who bases his view on physical evidence and the concept of a God is in my view an entirely human invention.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being young I have yet to achieve much of what I hope to do so in the future. My most significant achievement thus far is studying Natural sciences in the University of Cambridge. The most amazing thing that I have seen are the Easter Island statues.
