This photo is special because it is one of my favourite memories and in many ways it also symbolizes my approach to life. For me, work and leisure overlap significantly. I live to share moments with friends (both two legged and four legged) in the outdoors where I can participate in activities that have a high memory quotient. Most people would describe me as forward moving (a horse term meaning willing to move ahead with confidence), often with speed but still capable of traveling long distances. My preference has been, and always will be, to spend time in rural areas where there are no crowds, pavement, or traffic jams and where people are authentic, hard working and resilient.

This site highlights my professional journey so far emphasizing  scholarly activity. As  I continue on this ride, I will remain curious and plan to update the new discoveries I make along the way via blogposts.
