A
s a young person, I had strong interests in music, nature, and the range of human thought. I took these interests to the University of New Hampshire, where I majored in Zoology but had a strong interest in Philosophy and other humanities subjects. I still play the string bass. My MSc in Zoology is from the University of British Columbia, where I studied the ecology of small things that live in lake mud. My Doctorate, in Curriculum and Instruction from Brigham Young University, was given for a dissertation that looked at the relationships between what we think we know, and what we do with what we think we know.

My adult work has almost entirely been in the world of education. I’ve been a secondary school science teacher in Ucluelet Secondary School on the west coast of Vancouver Island; a biology and ecology instructor at a Douglas College in New Westminster BC; and a post-secondary instructor at both the University of Victoria and now as an Associate Professor at Royal Roads University. I’ve also worked outside the formal education system, managing the public programs department at the Royal BC Museum and developing environmental education and park interpretation programs for the BC Government.
