About

I'm originally from Canada's California - Vancouver Island. I can still smell that ocean air...

My longtime interest in politics led me to the world of academe. I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in International Relations at the University of British Columbia. My fascination with information technology and higher education led me to the University of Alberta where I did my Master of Library and Information Studies. Currently, I work as an Assistant Professor / Librarian at Mount Royal University, where I teach information literacy, do research, and have fun with my colleagues.

Hobbies and Interests:

  • Usability for mobile and wearable devices
  • Web and app development (JS, Swift, HTML, CSS)
  • Open educational resources and open access publishing
  • Wrist watch collecting (it's a problem)
  • Playing my Fender Stratocaster
  • Bicycling
  • Drawing and painting (watercolour)
  • Voracious reader of political history, current events, technology, community and culture, brain science, society, design, business and commerce, science fiction, westerns, mysteries, classics
