Born and bred on the Wirral in England – over the water from Liverpool – Tim studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford, and spent many years in business as an accountant before realizing his vocation was to be a teacher. Having trained in TESOL and Steiner Education, he has taught English in Greece, Italy, Turkey and Japan as well as in the UK and China. He is now based at NPU, Xi’an, where he teaches courses in Writing, Western Civilization, and Movie Appreciation.
In addition to a love of world music, poetry and football, Tim is particularly interested in the question of what different cultures bring to each other and what we need to learn from each other as we build a shared future together. The Sunset Dawn offers a medium for cultural exchange in tune with the cycles of nature and the creative potential of today’s media technology.
