I'm an educator, researcher, and filmmaker.

I teach English and Philosophy 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, "cranks", UFOs, and Cold War espionage.

My doctoral research was featured in 2018 on CBC Radio's Ideas.

You can also find me talking about UFOs and strange signals on the Science Channel series Phantom Signals.


I've made over a dozen films, both fiction and documentary, including my feature-length doc Pushback. My latest film is The Granite Man of Gilmour, a short documentary about a man who spent 30 years building a flying saucer.
