I am a Biology instructor in the Biological Science Department, Faculty of Arts & Science at Grant MacEwan University and have been at MacEwan since 1988.
I completed my BSc. (Zoology) and MSc. (Zoology) at the University of Alberta. My MSc. Thesis was entitled “Song, Vegetation, and Sound Production in Blue Grouse. Population ecology, animal behaviour and ornithology are my primary areas of biological speciality, although I also have a strong interest in insects, particularly butterflies and aquatic insects.
While at MacEwan I have lectures and/or labs in the following courses; BIOL 103 – Humans and their Environment, BIOL 107 – Introduction to Cell Biology, BIOL 108 – Organisms in their Environment, BIOL 208 – Principles of Ecology, BIOL 365 – Tropical Rainforest Ecology, ZOOL 224 – Vertebrate Diversity, ZOOL 225 – Comparative of the Vertebrates, and ZOOL 250 – Survey of the Invertebrates.
I spend most of my free time taking photographs. My other interests include hiking, camping, canoeing, nature watching, cross country skiing and fly fishing.
