I’m an anthropological archaeologist with over 16 years of professional experience. I have worked in Canada, the United States, Fiji, Tonga, Sāmoa, and Papua New Guinea. When I’m not teaching at KPU, I work full time for Inlailawatash which is a First Nations owned heritage management firm based in North Vancouver. Lastly, I’m also the co-creator and co-host of The Transect, a podcast about Archaeology in British Columbia.
