About Me

    In college, as I doodled instead of studying for an exam, I came across a note carefully etched into my desk: "Everyone thinks they know what they want to do and why they want to do it. But no one really thinks about what what they do does."

    I spend my time trying to understand effects. What does it mean for something to be beneficial or harmful? What harm is reversible? What harm is not?

    How can we live a life seeking truth while also not getting paralyzed by the inability to ever find it? Where does environmental influence end and personal responsibility begin?
