Biography

The passion of my life has been learning about the civilizations of our world and how they have led to the unique perspectives, cultures, and political systems around us today. I enjoy being immersed in the development of global politics and am a firm believer that history has not ended but is constantly unfolding around us.

I have a deep interest in the Indo-pacific and firmly see the future of political and technological progress here. I love to travel for extended periods and greatly enjoy engaging with the language and politics of other societies. As a hobby, I frequently visit an ecologically sustainable community to volunteer my gardening, landscaping, and group organising skills. I also enjoy martial arts, chess, and meditation, all of which I hope to practice while overseas in Taiwan.
