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 an Assistant Professor without Review in Anthropology with the Department of Community, Culture and Global Studies 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.
