yourself in five (or less) words?
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
‘How infinitesimal is the importance of anything I do, but
how infinitely important it is that I do it.' - Voltaire

is your most treasured possession?

is an understatement!)
were you like at school?

mutinous cadet and boarding school rebel on the other.
are you doing next?
Working with my libertarian compatriots to launch the Voice for
