I’m based on Canada’s west coast (Vancouver, British Columbia), at Simon Fraser University, as an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
I’m from Canada’s east coast (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia). I completed my undergraduate degree in sociology and political science at Dalhousie University, playing soccer for University of King’s College. I earned my graduate degrees at Carleton University in Ottawa, the muggy capital of Canada.
After my PhD, I taught at the University of Ottawa. Then, I went down the train tracks to teach and conduct my research at the University of Windsor, just south of Detroit. For almost eight years, I’ve been rolling around Vancouver, the Lower Mainland and the Gulf Islands.
