How did you get interested in philosophy?

I was always a "freethinker", but I had a crisis of conscience in my early 20's which led me to devour a lot of philosophical works. The interest continues to this day, even though I have already built my personal always need some touch-up work after all.

What are your main interests in philosophy?

Epistemology, moral questions, application of beliefs to everyday action, and also the understanding of the group modality in our culture. The concept of memes fascinates me.

Do you have a basic ethical philosophy?

Yep. And it's too long to list here but can be summed up as: do the minimum harm necessary to live a fruitful and satisfying life, while recognizing that other sentients are entitled to the same opportunity.
