Within this area of study he explored applied ethics debates in relation to prospective technologies, as well as a philosophical study of advanced Islamic metaphysics and logics.
Prior to this he attended St Paul’s Cathedral Choir School and prestigious Winchester College, where he received some of the highest examination results in both his year and in the country at Cambridge Pre-U Diploma, scoring particularly highly in Russian Language & Literature, and Philosophy & Theology.

Jasper grew up in Moscow with his English parents until the age of four before moving with his mother and younger brother back to London. A child of divorce himself, Jasper feels immense pride in the meaningful work Vardags does for struggling families in need of clear and steady guidance, and spent the first part of his Vardags career as a Client Relations Associate assisting the firm’s clients from the very earliest stage over the phone. Upon acquitting himself academically at Winchester, Jasper spent many months between the ages of 18 and 20 living abroad in both medieval Perugia and sunlit Amman, and has managed to travel widely around Italy, America, Russia and Pakistan
An actor and theatre lover, Jasper greatly enjoyed partaking in the vibrant student theatre scene and sketch comedy scene at the University of Cambridge and for a while considered pursuing acting and comedy professionally.
Jasper likes reading widely – especially ancient and biographical history, some philosophy, and classic novels above all. He also enjoys skiing, long-distance running, tutoring his younger sister, and making people laugh.
