Greetings from wintery Ontario!  

I hope this newsletter finds you all well in your lives. I sent out my last newsletter in July 2019 and since I have a few cool things to share, I thought it would be a good time to send out an update.

October Newsletter 2015 

Hi Everyone! 

How about that Super Moon, eh? That was pretty spectacular – I hope many of you got outside to witness that incredible event. I’ve been wrapping up my thesis  - all the “heavy-lifting” is done – now it’s just a few minor revisions and then I ship it off to my editor who will format it according to UBC standards and make it look like I actually have a good command of the English language. Then hopefully, I will get to defend that sucker by the end of this semester!

In the meantime, I am…
