About Vern

I don’t look nor sound my age. Outwardly, I always have to show my ID when I’m buying a drink. Inwardly, I’m an old soul with an incurable dependency on caffeine.  But just like you, I’m on a continuous journey of discovering what being here is all about.

I’m an engineer by profession, and I’m currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in London in sustainable energy systems. When I’m not so busy with school, you can find me roaming around with my camera, experimenting in the kitchen or clumsily scuffling my way at the rock climbing gym. My biggest experiment so far is figuring out what a 28 year-old can do for the society – big and small. I don’t think it’s something we just get in a day – but more like a lifetime process of trials and errors.  Being in London has been quite an adventure, and like every major turn in life, I will definitely be going home a changed person.

I dabble in a lot of things but mostly, I love to write. I attribute my love for the written word to my mother who invested most of her hard-earned salary in books for me and my late uncle who showed me the magic and power of writing. Admittedly, I haven’t been writing as much as I used to, and I’m still trying to find that little spark back.

Anyway, this blog has been my outlet for random musings for years – it’s a good starting point to give you a picture of who I am. If you’d like to get in touch, feel free to contact me – I assure you I’m pretty harmless.

Welcome, and enjoy your stay.
