“It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”

Epictetus was right. Bad things do happen; how we respond to them defines our character and the quality of our life.

I write about my interests and my professional projects: ranging from clean energy to international development and politics. I love reading – in particular about history, global affairs, creativity and leadership.

Life’s no fun without my girls and my friends. Wired to be outside.
