Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, following my graduation from SFU I engaged on a 26 year career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, serving across Canada (including the Yukon and NWT) and abroad throughout my service. I worked in general duty policing and with First Nations, as well as working on investigation of crimes against humanity and terrorism. I served overseas in Kosovo in 1999 with the 1st Canadian Forensic Investigation Team, and in 2006 - 2007 in Kandahar, Afghanistan on the opium trade. I completed my master's degree in 2002 and I am now completing my PhD at SFU in Criminology. Additionally, I work part-time as a Coroner with B.C. Coroners Service and I am a volunteer with various non-profit and service organizations.


The Memory Project includes a community of over 1,500 veterans and Canadian Forces members who are committed to sharing their stories of service.
