Where are you from?

London, UK

What do you do in your free time? 

In my spare time, I enjoy playing pool, walking around London, hiking, working out, drumming, cooking, drawing, trying out new restaurants, and blogging.

What are your favorite topics to write about? 

My favourite topics to write about are psychology, self-development, masculinity, men's mental health, and mindfulness.

Are there any blogs, podcasts, or vlogs that you can't get enough of?

The Joe Rogan Experience, Waking Up With Sam Harris.

What's something you've worked on or written that you're particularly proud of?

Definitely this article I wrote about men's support groups and why we need more of them.

(Editors note: I approve this message.)

What would your dream job be and why?

My dream job would be to make a full-time living publishing books. This would be my ideal job because it would be challenging in all sorts of ways, as well as offer a high degree of creative freedom.

Why do you write?

I write because I find it's the most natural and fulfilling way that I can express myself. I'm also constantly 'brainstorming' ideas, thinking deeply and introspectively about subjects that matter to me, and so I want to share those ideas to see if they resonate with anyone else. I really enjoy the sharing of information and the conversation that can start.

What do you hope readers get out of your work?

I hope readers can find a positive or impactful message from my work. My ultimate aim is to be able to make some difference through my writing, however small that may be.

Finally, we have to ask... boxers or briefs?
