My diverse level of experience makes my work unique. Having worked and travelled all over the world with the Royal Canadian Navy gave me an unparalleled view of the world. I have sailed in the Caribbean, the near Arctic, the Mediterranean, and along the shores of North Africa. Through these travels I have seen some of the best and worst elements of humanity. Training as a journalist, I learned how to navigate interviews and data to tell the best possible stories about people and their struggles. Now, as an academic, I have combined all of that experience to get at the heart of issues in Crown assertions of sovereignty, tensions between Indigenous and Canadian legal orders, and Crown treaty responsibilities.
