About

I’m a historian of contemporary Canada (the 1980s to now).  I believe that understanding the recent past helps us to see the present more clearly. History is closer than you think. 

Sports, games and physical activity are the lenses I use to explore everyday peoples’ understanding of the world. I’m curious about what people (mostly grown-ups) do for fun, and why.
