After living on three continents (and counting…), it isn’t always clear where home is. But my experiences in many places have helped to shape how I understand the world, and how I contribute to it. My work focuses upon understanding and encouraging transformations in everyday life in the context of diverse global mobilities. I have a particular interest in theories of practice; travel, migration and mobilities; and creative research engagements.

I’m currently an Academic Fellow at Lancaster University, with my time split between the DEMAND research centre and the Department of Sociology. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the David C. Lam Institute for East-West Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University, and studied Sociology at the University of Regina, University of Alberta, and Lancaster University (more about my MA, PhD and ongoing research projects can be found here). I have also worked as a facilitator, musical director and accompanist, as well as a teacher. When not occupied in these pursuits, I can be found practicing Ashtanga yoga, supporting contemporary art practitioners, cooking or eating delicious food, and wondering at the small details of the world around me.

If you’re curious about who I am and what I do, you can find out more in Projects, Sharing ideas, Sharing skills, Facilitation, Diversions and my Blog.
