I am South African by birth, but Aotearoa is my adopted home. I’ve studied Civil Engineering, English Literature, Classics, and Film.
My main areas of interest are:
- Systems thinking and design, in which I aspire to the insights of Fritjof Capra and Jane Jacobs
- Semiotics, where I am a devotee of Franco Moretti, Umberto Eco, and John G. Cawelti
- Detective fiction, especially the hard-boiled variety
