I am a writer whose primary aim is to speak the truth, regardless of how difficult or unpopular that may be.

Having been guilty of falling prey to ideology in the past (despite believing I was undogmatic), I am trying to understand that truth by being as critical as possible of my own inevitably flawed reasoning as well as that of others.

At present, having left journalism in 2017, I am working on my first book which I aim to have completed by 2019.

To date, my greatest influences have been George Orwell, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Friedrich Nietzsche and Jordan Peterson.
