Heritage & Museum Studies, Digital Archaeology

I am a Canadian archaeologist, now based in the Netherlands, after completing my Masters Degree at Leiden University.

I have nine years of experience in archaeological excavation and illustration, and three years experience in 3D modelling. I have worked in Canada, Greece, Italy, Israel, England, the United Sates, and the Netherlands. Information about my education and work experience can be found on the projects page or on LinkedIn. You may also view my CV upon request.

I began my education in archaeology in 2011, while enrolled at the University of Victoria, and have participated in archaeological and heritage projects since 2013. I started out as a field archaeologist in Boetoia, Greece, where I learned the basics of excavation, artifact analysis, and illustration. From there, I joined various projects in Greece and Israel as field illustrator and digital illustration coordinator. Eventually, I moved towards the digital side of artifact analysis, preservation, and presentation, working in Italy, the UK, the USA, and the Netherlands.

I also have a background in Northwest Coast archaeology. Pictured below is myself during a wonderful day of surveying and mapping a burial island in British Columbia.

In 2019, I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Heritage Management and Digital Archaeology from Leiden University’s Faculty of Archaeology. While there, I researched the politics, ethics and logistics of using 3D modelling in repatriation efforts of First Nation Cultural Material.
