Brief Biography
Currently I am completing a Ph.D in History of Art that involves an examination of intersections of landscape photography and ecocriticism. My previous background and studies include visual arts, photography, environmental studies, landscape horticulture, and garden history and design. As a sessional instructor I seek to provide an experiential component to the course work and to develop an interdisciplinary scope to the curriculum. I am passionate about learning and teaching and hope to continue to grow and develop along this path.
