OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A hyper-active academic, writer, foodie and traveler. I studied Social Anthropology and Religious Studies at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland in pursuit of the wisdom of William James and David Hume. Towards the end of my PhD I moved to Oxford, and worked for St. Antony’s College.

My interest ranges widely, from food to cinema, from philosophy to arts, anything I feel cryptic or interesting. At the same time i am equally passionate about social issues and causes. For me, the creative mind that ever seeks, reflects and transforms out current condition is what makes us human, as this blog title – “Creative Evolution” indicates. (taken from one of my favourite books, see “Books in My Life”)

Some of my media and press appearances can be found here. I can be reached at @tingguowrites and Ins GreenStylist.
