I’m the founder of Discover Earth, a blog and community for science and wonder.

I’m in the process of discovering where my passion for books and nature leads me.

My main project is the Big Ideas Network. It’s a blog where I am teaching myself the most influential ideas in human history in order to better understand the universe.

My second project is creating a community for people interested in the above. I think they’d be a cool bunch.

Hope you like it so far. There’s lots more to come.


A website that makes the most influential and significant ideas that human beings have ever had easy to understand.

Because philosophy arises from awe, a philosopher is bound in his way to be a lover of myths and poetic fables. Poets and philosophers are alike in being big with wonder.
