The Optimistic Cynicism of J·M·G


Picture of me

Hi, I'm Jahla. I'm a geek, armchair philosopher, sometimes fashion designer, and occasional social commentator from Canberra, Australia.

I’m a lib­eral and cre­ative arts advo­cate, and I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to learn new things in the monitor glow. I'm also often found Dj-ing, design­ing alter­na­tive fash­ion, indulging my love of anime, and geek­ing out on my beloved Mac­book Pro... I studied con­ti­nen­tal phi­los­o­phy, cli­ma­tol­ogy, and climate policy at the Aus­tralian National Uni­ver­sity, and did my Philosophy Hon­ours the­sis on Anx­i­ety in Heidegger’s ‘Being and Time’.

Oh, and — as you can see this is my personal site, i.e. views expressed here are mine (not those of any organisations I am involved in or work for, past present or future).
