Stuart Burnham, a native of Spokane, WA, started writing for CVNC in 2004. As an undergrad he double majored in English and Music/Piano Performance at Wake Forest University, where he also ran cross-country and track on a full scholarship (1990-94). He then spent a year (1994-5) teaching English in the Czech Republic, where he met his (American) wife. They currently live in Mount Olive, and he teaches at Mount Olive College. He holds a Masters in Musicology from Stanford University (2001) and is currently working on his Ph.D., also from Stanford; his dissertation deals with the Czech composer Václav Tomášek (1774-1850) and musical life in Prague in the early 19th century.
