I'm an educator, researcher, and filmmaker.

I'm a permanent instructor with Northern Lakes College, where I teach English and Philosophy. I earned my PhD in 2019 from Trent University, and held a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Western Ontario. I work on conspiracy theory, "cranks", UFOs, and the history of science in Cold War Canada.

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 new 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 UFO.
