Welcome to my website.
On this site you will find a selection of my writing, on a range of subjects: philosophy, politics, art, finance and social business. Some of this work has been published elsewhere and some of which is only available here.
Each time a new piece of writing is added to the site it will also be profiled on this page. The work has been divided into three categories.
Shorter pieces are classified as articles
Longer pieces are classified as essays
Pieces that comment specifically on the work of others are classified as reviews
The site was launched in January 2009. I hope you find it interesting.
