Theo is the School Chaplain of St Peter’s College, Adelaide, and works across the whole school (ELC – Year 12). He graduated with a PhD in Systematic Theology from Flinders University in 2008 and his thesis was published as The Greenie’s Guide to the End of the World (Adelaide: ATF, 2011).
He is an Adjunct Lecturer at St Barnabas’ College and the University of Divinity. Theo is keenly interested in the dialogue between systematic theology and positive psychology, particularly from a practical point of view in delivering chaplaincy services and Religious Studies lessons.
In October 2013 he attended a meeting in Canterbury of spiritual leaders and psychologists led by Martin Seligman. He co-edited the proceedings of this meeting in a book entitled Being Called (Santa Barbara: Praeger, 2015). Theo has presented and run workshops on wellbeing widely, including writing the entry on “Positive Spirituality” in Palgrave Handbook of Positive Education (London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2021).
He enjoys cycling, singing and music, bushwalking, good food and red wine, and making connections between movies and theology.
