Mr Elliott joins us from a liberal arts university in Morocco where he taught for over 10 years. Originally, Mr Elliott is from Canada and holds a PhD in History from the University of Cambridge, Master's degrees from LSE and Universität Leipzig, and a joint BA (Hons) in International Development Studies and Political Science from Dalhousie University.
Mr Elliott began his career in education as a wilderness and alpine instructor, leading climbing and wilderness backcountry expeditions up and down the Americas, from Alaska to Patagonia. While age has somewhat tempered his outdoor activities, he still enjoys time in the mountains and nature with family and friends. Mr Elliott has been visiting Slovenia regularly since 2002 and is very happy to now call Ljubljana his home, and to learn Slovenian.
