MA Graduate Student
Areas: Early modern, humanism, posthumanism, renaissance, revolutions, and the human form.
I am a fledgling writer pursuing an MA in Comparative Media Arts at Simon Fraser University. In this program, I am hoping to gain a deeper understanding of the consequential periods of time that result to transformative changes in the way we see, feel, and interact with the world around us.
I am a transfer from the MA in Liberal Studies program at SFU. My educational background is in humanities and art history. I earned my BA in Liberal Studies from Capilano University, and have pursued further studies in Art History and Visual Art at the University of British Columbia. My undergraduate research is an interrogation of art, knowledge, and visual culture during the early modern period. My work in the field of art are reflected in the following: as a Curatorial Intern at the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art, as an Official Photographer at the Vancouver Biennale, as a Production and Site Assistant at the Vancouver fringe Festival, and as a Museum Assistant at the UBC Museum of Anthropology.
Outside of arts and academics, I have a competitive background as a student-athlete. During my undergraduate years, I played for Capilano University’s Women’s Basketball team. However, an ACL injury ended my career in the cutthroat world of college sports, leading me to pursue a career in coaching. I have since coached Point Grey Secondary’s Junior Girls Basketball team from 2010 to 2014, and Cariboo Hill Secondary’s Bantam team from 2015-2016. I am taking a short break from coaching in order to focus on my career as an emerging writer and arts scholar.
Passion is what drives me to pursue. I have a very talented and inspiring wife, and a big family who teaches me a lot about love, life and humility.
