I received my Bachelor and Master degrees from the University of Waterloo in Geography, specializing in Geomatics and Parks and Protected Areas for my BES (a. 2000) and Geomatics and Medical Geography for my thesis-based MES (a. 2004).
Along with being a CTF member, I am also a staff member in Laurier's Department of Geography and Environmental Studies. Since 2016, I have been employed as the department's Cartographer/Geospatial Specialist. I provide geomatics support to students, faculty and researchers on both Waterloo and Brantford campus'.
As part of my role, I am also an operator of the department's fleet of drones, including quadcopter and fixed wing models.
