There are three things which light my fire: Art History, because Art and Artists document certain truths about the development of the human species; how we have ended up where we are and potentially where we’re going.

The written word because without the process of thinking and communicating those thoughts, our presence on this planet would be meaningless.

And philosophy, because only through systematic examination of the Human Condition can we begin to explain humankind’s magnificence as well as our callous inhumanity.

I have also enjoyed a lifelong enthusiasm for the ways in which rotten eggs and tomatoes can be used as tools of persuasion against those whose egos have outgrown their diminutive capabilities.
