MY STORY BEGINS WITH A SILVER LINING.
When the 3-D computer animation studio I was working at as a Jr. Animator was hit with lay-offs, I seized the opportunity to pursue a career in something I was truly passionate about, archaeology. I went “back to school” and, believing in the value of an interdisciplinary approach, received my BA degree in Anthropology with a concentration in Archaeology and a minor in Latin from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. Fast forward to present day: I recently received my PhD from Stanford University in the Department of Anthropology, Archaeology track and am currently a Research Associate with the Department of Anthropology at The University of British Columbia. Along the way, I have been fortunate enough to work at sites in Belize, Turkey, and Sicily dating to the prehistoric, Roman, and Byzantine periods. I invite you to explore my site to learn more about what I do.
