About me


I'm a philosopher based in Sydney, Australia. I'm interested in issues in global ethics, and how complexity science can contribute to questions in moral and political philosophy.

I was born in Australia but spent 19 years growing up in Asia, 11 of which were in Malaysia. I went to an international school. That, combined with growing up connected to the internet, shaped my identity as a global citizen.

I started the Talk of Today podcast after a realisation that having stimulating conversations is my favourite thing to do.

I currently work at the freelancing platform Speedlancer.
In the past, I've worked in startups and consultancies and have worked as a freelance strategy consultant.
