My name is Ben Chenoweth, and I'm currently a teacher at Donvale Christian College, in Melbourne, Australia. I've worked overseas with Wycliffe Bible Translators, and in Australia as a secondary and tertiary teacher. (I was the Educational Designer / eLearning Coordinator at Melbourne School of Theology for four years, and taught at Eastern College for some of that time.)
My main interests are music, writing, theology and various combinations of those. I have a number of other interests, including reading, crosswords (especially cryptics and metas), and computer games. I also enjoy programming. My About Me website was put together as an HTML/CSS demonstration for my Year 10 Computing class. Another interesting programming project is my EPUB Metadata Editor (an open-source project on GitHub).

Here's my second meta crossword. No two letter words and it's fully interlocking this time! To avoid anyone going down rabbit holes, while the title of this meta is "Expanding brackets", please ignore all of the brackets in the clues. I just like wri...

Financial Downturn (Meta)

· Published about 1 month ago

This is my first ever crossword, so go easy on me. It's also a meta because I've been getting into these recently and thought I'd give it a try. Turns out these things are really hard to construct! I've definitely made some concessions to crossword c...
