I’m George - coder, bookworm, polyglot, travel enthusiast, guitarist, metalhead, skeptic, and contrarian.

I was born in London, I grew up in Oxfordshire, I dropped out of the University of Manchester and I later gained a BA in Computer Science from Oxford. In between universities I spent five years travelling the world. Having previously lived in Barcelona, Berlin, Bali, Saigon and São Paulo, I’m currently back in London.

This Substack is where I store all the excess thoughts I can’t keep in my head. I make a new post every Friday.

I can also be found on Twitter, Goodreads, and wherever books are sold.
