I'm an educator, researcher, and filmmaker.
I teach philosophy, politics, English and research methods at Northern Lakes College. I received my PhD in 2019 from Trent University, and held a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Western Ontario. I study conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, and "cranks," UFOs and the supernatural, and Cold War espionage.
I'm an independent filmmaker, having made over a dozen films, both fiction and documentary, including my feature-length doc Pushback. My latest films are The Granite Man of Gilmour, a short documentary about a man who spent 30 years building a flying saucer, and Everlasting Wheat, a 4-minute film about a farmer convinced of a government conspiracy.
I am privileged to live on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory with my partner Shelby, and to be learning Kanyen'kéha, the Mohawk language.
