Meet the team

The Lantern is produced in Melbourne, Australia, by Steve Clavey, Bettina Brill and Michael Ellis.

Bettina handles subscriptions and financials, Steve handles content, and Michael handles design and sub-editing. Each of us thinks the other two work harder.

Steve Clavey

Steve Clavey

Steve handles content at The Lantern. He runs a Chinese herbal clinic in the city of Melbourne, and enjoys playing Go, translating ancient medical Chinese, fresh-water fly-fishing, Xing Yi, cooking, Chen style Taichi, the study of transparadigmatic traditional psychology, and banjo.


Bettina Brill

Bettina Brill

Bettina is mainly in charge of subscriptions and advertising at The Lantern. She is also a practitioner of Chinese herbal medicine and part-time lecturer at SSNT/Melbourne. In her spare time she likes to practice Xing Yi, climb volcanoes and swim with big fish.


Michael Ellis

Michael Ellis

When he’s not surfing (the waves, not his Twitter account) Michael does a little sub-editing as a hangover from his former life as a journalist, teaches in the shiatsu diploma at East West College, Melbourne, and otherwise runs a clinic combining Chinese herbs with shiatsu. He takes care of the production end of The Lantern. He claims to be as passionate about Chinese medicine as he is about surfing, although the veracity of this claim depends upon the swell size on any given day.
