An introverted extrovert, I enjoy anything from yoga, reading, writing, vegan food, gigs, live comedy, hiking, cinema, finding London’s oldest pubs, cycling, running and nerding out on the piano. My weekends are usually spent hunting down plant markets because I keep killing all of mine!

Having also launched a travel blog, here at APW you’ll find thoughts and opinion pieces (mostly from books/articles I’ve read) that I hope make you think you in some way. I like to use the power of the pen (or keyboard) to inspire people to live a more mindful life.

And just cause, here’s a picture of me with a big tree.

Some Favourite Quotes

The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts.

Marcus Aurelius

The most audacious thing I could possibly state in this day and age is that life is worth living. It’s worth being bashed against. It’s worth getting scarred by. It’s worth pouring yourself over every one of its hot coals.

Jeff Buckley

Is it better to speak or die?

Andre Aciman
