About me:

Originally, I'm from Newfoundland and proudly Canadian, which makes me a big fan of the ocean and mountains.  My spare time is mainly spent outdoors mountain biking, snowboarding, rock climbing, fishing, playing soccer or cycling. I am quite outgoing and like to get involved with extracurricular activities where I study or work to promote healthy and friendly relations with collegues. I have been involved in the EOAS Grad student sport and social committees to help students become engaged within the earth science community.

BSc Honours, Memorial University of Newfoundland, 2011
 

Professional Societies:
