Welcome to my user page! If you want to contact me, feel free to post to my talk page or to send me email.

I am a Postgraduate Student living in Singapore, in the middle of a Master of Arts in Late Antique & Byzantine Studies at King's College London, having previously acquired a BA in Classics from the same institution. I am an alumnus of the Anglo-Chinese family of schools in Singapore, specifically Anglo-Chinese Junior School, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Anglo-Chinese Junior College in turn.

My research interests include Byzantine History, Late Antique Greek and Byzantine Palæography, Culture and Religion in Late Antiquity, Theology & Liturgy of the Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches, Byzantium after Byzantium, Postclassical Greek and Latin.

While on sabbatical in Singapore, I teach Greek & Latin as a private tutor, and Greek Tragedy at Anglo-Chinese Junior College.

I have a particular interest in Eastern Christianity, specifically in its Byzantine form, being a member of the Russian Catholic Church. I am a chanter trained in various traditions of church music both East and West, but particularly in Slavonic (Russian, Galician etc), Byzantine and Gregorian Chant.

In my free time I fence Sabre, Rapier and Broadsword. I also play Lute - both the smaller Renaissance 7-course Lute, the Baroque Archlute and Theorbo (which means I also play Basso Continuo).
