Zip-lining down from Tau Cave, Fiji

I grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of the Ottawa Valley in Canada. After high school, I moved to the big city where I studied Prehistoric Archaeology and Visual Studies at the University of Toronto.

My time at UofT ignited a passion for archaeology which I pursued, skipping my graduation ceremony to fly to Ireland where I worked as a contract archaeologist.

Living abroad strengthened my already strong appetite for travel and I took advantage of every chance to explore. When the opportunity arose to work as an archaeologist in Lesotho, Africa, I packed my bags!

Following my time in Africa, I returned to Ireland where I obtained my PhD in Archaeology from the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Over my career as an archaeologist I’ve participated in excavations, museum based research and field surveys in Ireland, Lesotho, Canada, France, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Mexico, South Africa, Greece, Portugal, Hawai`i and Switzerland.
