The Battles of 2016

Two suicides of good friends in a year probably should’ve broken me but it didn’t – I’ve learned to grieve fast and move on fast. That probably summed up 2016 pretty well. I’ve learned so well to disconnect, numb myself and ignore the swell beneath the surface I’ve kept paddling on. 2016 has been a year of highest of highs [...]

After multiple attempts to work with you to get things right, maybe a public letter may get more attention. Your customer service, or lack thereof, makes me feel like I am part of your practical joke. Being new to London, I have received a lot of advice on things I must do when I first arrived, like opening a bank [...]

Reflection, Social Change

Home away from home

Weaving through the streets of Siem Reap on the back of a tuk-tuk at 4.30AM in the morning, warm humid air brushing my exposed skin, I reflected on the past few days on this side of the world.

Manthropology Episode 4 with Simon Taylor

Today’s blog post comes in the form of a podcast I did with Mr Simon Taylor. It’s an hour long but I think it sums up my entire life story, if not almost my entire life story. Grab a cup of coffee and tune in.
