Hi I'm Kevin, and welcome to my Medium page.

I'm a freelance writer, artist, and communications professional, currently working at the University of Oxford.

I use Medium to write and share articles on a variety of topics, including mental health, art, literature, politics, poetry, and happiness. Ultimately everything I write about revolves around a single theme of pursuing a good life even in the midst of pain and suffering (the latter of which I know a lot about.)

I've spent half my life in crisis. Battling demons of despair and death, I've belatedly found peace; but I also know there are plenty of people in similar battles. That's why I write. This Medium blog can be likened to my personal confession, but within it, I blend personal anecdotes with research and factual analysis to inspire others to find their own pathway to peace.

I don't churn out articles every day, nor even every week. I can't. That's because most of the time, I have my nose in a book, researching my next topic. Or else I'm enjoying being a dad, to my two-year-old son, or cooking for my wife. When I have a moment of peace, I savour it, then I'm driven to pick up a pen and start a new sentence.

Thank you for visiting this page. I hope you follow me, and read some of my articles as well.
