About me

Over the last 20 years, I’ve had a lot of fun using my creative skills to design and develop eLearning and face-to-face courses and modules in post-secondary education. Early in my career, I discovered I’m motivated to combine my many digital technologies, research, communications, and project vision skills to create learning experiences. These skills led me to many enjoyable opportunities to assess, redesign, and evaluate the effectiveness of existing courses and modules and create new courses from scratch. I worked with many wonderful people as a sessional instructor at Seneca College (Toronto), the University of Victoria (BC), and Ontario Tech University (Oshawa), many of whom helped me hone my design, facilitation, assessment, and research skills.

Throughout my academic career I’ve always been draw to people’s life stories, and perhaps that is why I selected phenomenology (reflective lifeworld research) for the methodology in my dissertation. I am now branching out and combining my love for writing, research, and life stories to write music biographies. I grew up, worked, and studied while listening to a plethora of hard rock bands, so it was natural for me to combine my research skills with my love for music to create a scholarly approach to writing music biographies. In the fall of 2023 Spirit of Inquiry published my first book, The Rise of the Fox: 1950-1982. This is the inaugural instalment in the Eric Carr Revealed series, the acclaimed former drummer for the rock band KISS. The second instalment is due out in late 2025 and is titled The Drums of Thunder: 1982-1987.

I hold Bachelor of Education and Master of Education degrees from Brock University and a Doctor of Philosophy in Education from the University of Victoria. I live in British Columbia, Canada.
