As an Englishman living and working in New Jersey, I have found that my perceptions of my home country have become more complex and more intense over the years. I am interested in the landscape and languages of the British Isles, the origins of our various cultures and national traditions. I am a student of the sciences and the humanities and the places where they meet: in history and archaeology, geography and mythology.
In my day job, I am a publisher of academic books and journals at John Wiley & Sons. I am married to Sharon; we live in South Orange with our sons Aidan (14) and Ethan (11).
