Honorary Associate, Classics and Ancient History, La Trobe University

I have extensive experience in researching and lecturing on Ancient Greek history and culture.
In recent years I have had a particular intrerest in analysing the influence of Greek myth in modern film.
I have also reviewed and written on cinema while undertaking a long and diverse career within the Commonwealth government. Areas for which I have had responsibility include international relations, industrial relations, Indigenous environmental policy, film industry policy and sports anti-doping policy.
