I am a high school teacher in Melbourne, Australia. My interest in classical education has stemmed from both an education in and love of the liberal arts, as well as a desire to inculcate in my students more rigorous philosophical thinking skills, an appreciation for the past, and growth in virtue. I've a passion for history, philosophy and theology, in particular: Han dynasty Chinese and 18th century French history, Aristotelian and existentialist philosophy, and biblical theology. I also enjoy cooking, spending time in nature, and exercising in a vain attempt to lose those last few kilos. Upon my demise, I'm to be succeeded by my cat, Claudius.
