Anthony is founder and manager of Polar Aspect, a consultancy focused on Arctic public policy and governance. From 2008 to 2011, he lived and worked in the Canadian Arctic as a senior policy official with the Government of Nunavut, and he continues to publish and speak on a range of Arctic issues.

Anthony is founder and director of NORMAC, MAC Bilbao and WYCOMAC, the world's only secondary-school Model Arctic Council (MAC) conferences, and of NORMAC University, an undergraduate MAC. By playing the roles of delegates to the Arctic Council, pupils and students participating in these innovative experiential learning programmes learn about the Arctic, its peoples and its challenges, and develop their skills in public speaking, negotiating and consensus building.

In addition to his Arctic-related work, Anthony teaches Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Geography at Norwich School, one of the UK’s top independent coeducational day schools. He is also Adjunct Professor of Canadian Studies at Trent University in Canada.

Whether in the Arctic or 'down South', Anthony is a keen photographer. For more, see his online portfolio, Chasing Polaris.
