Anthropology is the holistic study of humanity past and present.  I am a cultural anthropologist with a pragmatic theoretical perspective.  I am specifically interested in how applied anthropology, and an appreciation for cultural diversity, can provide different perspectives in the classroom, on real-world phenomenon, projects and problems. 

I am also passionate about education and keen to share what I have learned.  Within these pages (which are a continual 'work in progress') I hope you find useful tips, tricks, documents and information.

I welcome your feedback and input. Please feel free to email me at if you have any questions or comments.  Enjoy!
