This article provides a brief intellectual history of my journey from traditional public administration through modernist-empiricism to an interpretive approach and its associated research themes; a story of how I got to where I am.

I have a vaulting ambition: to establish an interpretive approach and narrative explanations in political science, so redefining public policy analysis.
