What I Do
I have delivered talks on mostly philosophical subjects, especially longtermism. I sometimes speak to local EA groups (so far in Cambridge, Hong Kong, and India), and I also recently gave a talk for the Effective Altruism Consulting Network. I was shortlisted to deliver a TEDx talk on the value of teaching philosophy in schools.
This is mostly web design and development. I'm fairly familiar with HTML, JS, CSS, Sass, React, and GatsbyJS. I'm somewhat (> 20 hours each) familiar with Google Analytics, WordPress, and Firebase. I'm currently getting to grips with NodeJS.
Through setting up Hear This Idea, I'm now fairly proficient with the basics of podcasting: audio engineering, hosting, remote interviews, etc. I enjoy consulting on this — email me for rates (pro bono if you're a nonprofit).
I make animations ranging from small logo animations ('idents') to more sophisticated motion graphics. They can work as standalone pieces, or integrated into a film. Most of this is done in After Effects.
This includes posters, logos, and social media output. A good example is my work for the Cambridge Union.
This can involve shoot sit-down interviews and on-location filming – like this series of films I made for The Mountain Way charity. Nowadays, I mostly edit things – like this recent video about superconductors. I have also covered sports events, presentations, and conferences.
