When do you do your best writing?
There is no specific time of day. Ideas come to me during my waking hours and I try to find the first opportunity to write them down while they are fresh in my mind. I am an inspiration-based writer.
How do you measure success?
I measure success by the impact my actions have on humanity at large and the world I live in. Money is simply a tool to create opportunities for impact and not the essence of success for me. The ability to think, articulate and act beyond my immediate needs is my measure of success.
One thing most readers may not know about you?
I am as deeply passionate about the arts and humanities as I am about science and technology. I am also very intrigued by human psychology and curious about what motivates people to act in certain ways.
