“There is no better cure for our ailments than that of sound philosophy.” – Simon Drew

I’m an Australian poet, musician and philosopher now based in Orange County, California. I’m widely known as a populariser of the Stoic school of philosophy through my podcast The Practical Stoic, started in 2017. My first published work of poetry and prose is called The Poet & The Sage: A Journey Beyond the Distant Hills. I’ve also released multiple music albums, including three jazz albums and three original compositions. As a philosophical mentor, I’ve worked with people from over 15 nations, helping them to move closer toward the actualisation of their highest and most noble aspirations.

"What an invitation! An invitation to slow down, an invitation to reflect on what's meaningful (and why), an invitation to be creative, an invitation to be intentional. And it is that invitation for intention that contains a subtle challenge too "how will I live my life with intention?"

"I spent years thinking someone else's thoughts, speaking to myself, and out aloud, in someone else's voice. I think I spent all this time walking the road of someone else's journey. What a trip it is to take this journey and be guided by someone like Rocco."
