Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming ‘sub-creator’ and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour.”

– J.R.R. Tolkien

My name is George and I care very deeply about the truth. For exactly that reason, I also care very much about myth. Where the two intersect is where I like to write – about war, politics, technology, ethics, and the first Maker of all.

I’m happy to have spent some time studying: Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford (BA), International Security at Sciences Po (MA), and Conflict, Security and Development at King’s College London (MA). Since those bookish years, I have travelled the world, embarking on all sorts of projects and meeting all kinds of resilient, powerful and curious people.
