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. Follow his Arctic-related work on his blog, Arctic Political Economy.

Anthony is also founder and director of NORMAC and MAC Bilbao, the world's only secondary-school Model Arctic Council conferences. By playing the roles of delegates to the Arctic Council, pupils participating in these unique 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 and Economics at Norwich School, one of the UK’s top independent coeducational day schools. Outside class, he oversees the school’s extension programme for pupils applying to Oxford and Cambridge, and he supervises Model UN and other youth diplomacy.

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