I enjoy exploring topics at the intersection of disciplines and that bridge different cultures. I extract philosophical concepts and themes in materials from different disciplines and different time periods and cultures. The point is to think in different ways about general questions, such as: What is it to act? What is narrative? That’s my hobby.
