I endeavour to exist in a mode of critical openness to a wide variety of ideas, activities and experiences. I like to explore philosophical and non-philosophical literature relating to different dimensions of life. I enjoy films, poetry, writing, photography, travel, cultural practices and, occasionally, the company of other humans.
