I am a freelance writer and podcast host. I enjoy discussing culture, society, life, death, drugs, philosophy, travel and self-help.

After many years working towards the best way of thinking, the clearest mind, I have come to find that you must train your mind, get to work, ask more for yourself, dream bigger and accept that your being is prone to suffering. Whether that is innate, learned, nature, nurture, whatever, it doesn't matter.
Day 1 Waves. Sound is the first sense to come back to me, lying on my back in some ungodly shape. As my eyes adjust to the blinding light I begin to feel the sensation of warmth across my skin, the suns warmth in particular. The sun has a very specific warmth, and this time I was tricked into believing I was somewhere pleasant for a moment. It was just then that it dawned on me, wasn’t I just on a fucking plane to Costa Rica? Where the fuck am I now? Why the fuck am I in a yellow raft in the middle of the fucking ocean? This is a dream right, surely this is a dream.
Koh Tao, Thailand, Part I
Ko Tao (also often Koh Tao; Thai: เกาะเต่า, pronounced [kɔ̀ʔ tàw], lit. ''Turtle Island'') This year I made a dream of mine a reality, and I hope to one day return to that dream, on the magical island of Koh Tao, in the Gulf of Thailand. Surrounded by white sandy beaches, incredibly complex coral reefs, world class diving, absolutely bonkers local cuisine and a vibe that is slow to wake up in the morning and late to go to bed at night, Koh Tao truly offers it all.
Thank you. Sincerely, from deep down, thank you. I know I don’t say it enough, but I wouldn’t be here without all the hard work you put in.
What I learned from…Marcus Aurelius
“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” - M.A Every story needs a beginning
"Vampires, real vampires, didn't nibble on the necks of nubile young virgins. They tore people to pieces and sucked the blood out of the chunks" - David Wellington
Why I want to be a Cult Leader
Nearly two thousand five hundred years ago men and woman would gather under the stoa of ancient Greece to learn first hand the lessons of the greatest thinkers of their time, maybe the greatest thinkers of all time. A place where discussion was paramount, learning was inevitable and being wrong a certainty. Sitting there, dressed in a robe or toga of some kind, alongside your fellow tribe, you wouldn’t have noticed, you had just joined a cult. As these leaders in thought went about their teachings, they were indoctrinating you into a new way of life, a new way of believing.
The Wild in All of Us
Days can last forever, years can feel like minutes. Time is fleeting at best, make good use of it whilst you can. Something so beautiful about nature,
