of existence is: live dangerously!
Build your cities on Vesuvius and 
send your ships into uncharted seas!"

SHOKUNIN

A master, or mastery, of one's profession.


'Shokunin' describes the way Japanese craftsmen spend

every day trying to be better at what they do.


"You must immerse yourself in your work.

You must fall in love with it &

dedicate your life to mastering your skill.

That's the  secret of success.

I make no claim to mastery,

nor would call myself anything approaching a master.


But I've been travelling the world writing books for 5 years.
I've released 3 novels, a play, a history of Venice,

and am currently finalising my 4th novel 

while writing a book of pastoral poetry.

In a world of vapid 'influencers' & motivational charlatans 

I've only ever collected & heeded the words of

the best, the brightest, the hardest working:—


those statesmen, emperors, generals; 

writers, artists, philosophers; 

geniuses, adventurers, & explorers


WHO DARED GREATLY & STROVE VALIANTLY;


WHO ADVANCED HUMANITY'S CONCEPTION OF EXCELLENCE;


AND WHOSE NAMES & REPUTATIONS HAVE SURVIVED CENTURIES.
