About Me

Welcome. I’m a member of the inaugural class of students at Yale-NUS College, where I study Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Art History. I’m a proud New Zealander, and grew up in a diplomatic family in the United States, the Cook Islands, the Philippines, Spain, Singapore and New Zealand in-between. I’ve previously studied at Yale University and ten other academic institutions in those six countries.

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and blogging since I was fourteen (I’m now 23). Not all my writing makes it on here. At various points I’ve tried to summarise the topics and style of this blog, but I can never stick to it. Best to think of it as a collection of writing and links reflecting my state of mind at a given point in time.

A disclaimer: the views expressed on this blog do not necessarily represent the present views of the author. Necessary to say when you’ve grown up while writing a blog!

I do my best to answer all emails, and hearing from readers has been one of the real privileges of publishing my writing here. I’d love to hear from you. Please introduce yourself.
