I am originally from the beautiful ocean side village of Inverness in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.  After completing high school, I took an undergraduate degree at St. Francis Xavier University.  I took my education degree at the University of Maine.   Before I began working at K’alemi Dene School, I was a newspaper reporter at the Yellowknifer.   I have lived in Yellowknife since 2006 and I’m married to Laura.  We just had our gorgeous daughter, Mabel in October. 

I have been working with KDS since 2008, where I teach High School English Language Arts, Social Studies and Art.   Teaching at KDS is great and I really enjoy helping students improve their literacy skills.  I also love helping my students achieve the goal of receiving their high school diploma and making the transition into the post-secondary schooling or the work world.
