Benjamin John received a B.A. in English from UNM in 2012 and spent the next several years in a cave contemplating the purpose of life. Now, he has emerged knowing that the purpose of life is service. In that spirit, he is thankful for the opportunity to commence work on an M.A. in Classics. His interests are saving the Latin language through study and teaching, researching magic and religion in the Greco-Roman world, and plucking on a guitar from time to time.
