About me

I’m interested in the ways in which we can move towards better futures. As a kid steeped in the postmodern culture of the 90s and 2000s, grand narratives were something my generation missed out on. Instead, we got the viral nihilism of the modern web, and a general apathy about fixing the problems of the present.

’s utopian fiction project at has inspired me to be a part of the conversation, helping move away from apathy and towards praxis.

In addition to writing this newsletter I’ve pursued Philosophy academically, and have dabbled in solarpunk and hopepunk fiction.

Thanks for reading!
