My strong interest in history and a desire to engage with it in a more hands-on fashion led me to archaeology, where I became specifically interested in BC archaeology, as well as historical archaeology in general. My emerging interest in protecting the past is pointing me towards involvement in BC Heritage Law.
I am working with Dr. Reimer on a project to determine the elemental composition of the high-quality dacite that occurs in large quantities in the Arrowstone Hills west of Kamloops, and to compare archaeological lithic artifacts to that data to establish a baseline for the geospatial distribution of the material across the BC Plateau, Sub-Arctic, and Northwest Coast.
I enjoy the outdoors very much, and spend as much time in it as I can by hiking, camping, fishing, and hunting. I also brew beer, and try to do as much woodworking as I can.
