Instructor, English

Literature has long been my primary guide to life, and I believe reading and writing can help anyone better understand and articulate their place in the world. It’s a pleasure to work as an English instructor in the province that taught me to pay as close attention to the forests I walk as the sentences I read and create. 

Just as nature inspires mountain bikers and skiers to get maximally attuned to the land, so too can the outdoors become a source of creative and practical energy for our daily lives. I also believe that no matter what we’re working on, whether it’s an academic research paper or an office email, we should allow ourselves room for at least a smidgeon of eloquence, humour, art.
