I was born in a quiet part of the province of Ontario in Canada where I grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of the Ottawa Valley.

After completing high school, I moved to the big city where I obtained an Honours B.A. in 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 move to Ireland to work as a contract archaeologist.

Living outside of Canada further invigorated my already strong appetite for travel and I took advantage of the chance to explore Europe and North Africa. When the opportunity arose to work as an archaeologist in Lesotho, Africa, and journey across the southern part of that continent, I packed my bags and was off!

Following my time in Africa, I returned to Ireland where I obtained my PhD in Archaeology from the National University of Ireland, Galway, studying with Dr. Carleton Jones. I am currently publishing my research in journals and monographs and balancing my academic side with my love for yoga and cultural experiences.

Having participated in excavations, museum based research and field surveys in Ireland, Lesotho, Canada, France and Scotland, I am ready to lend a helping hand on interesting archaeological projects around the world and to share them with you!
