I graduated with a BA in Anthropology from Université de Montréal in 2005. For the past six years, I have been working as a Field Director in Southern Ontario while my early career was spent excavating in Peru and Québec. In the past two years I have developed an interest in Maritime Archaeology and I hope to further my expertise and contribute to this field in the future. Ultimately, I aim to own an archaeological consulting firm with a specialty in underwater fieldwork.

Other Activities:

Besides archaeology, my time is spent furthering my scuba-diving qualifications and managing my rental property.
