Welcome to my history blog of stuff that I find new or interesting in my work and research. You’ll notice that there are often ties back to the Windermere Valley in the Canadian Rocky Mountains because that’s where I grew up and did a lot of research during my undergrad, but I’ve also lived and worked in Banff, Alberta; New Zealand; and the Maritimes, so you might say I’m getting progressively more international.

The part I love most about history is helping others to be excited about the past and the present and how they interact. History is a series of interrelated stories that lead in all sorts of strange and surprising directions that never fail to entertain. I hope I can share a small portion of these experiences: Enjoy.
