B.A. (Honours) Human Geography, Brock University
"I had not anticipated my current enthusiasm for human geography. What was originally a quest for a pass degree turned into an honours degree, and now I’m working on my Masters. As a local musician, I thought it would be ideal to somehow combine my love of music with my emerging passion for geography. And so, my MA thesis focuses on the ways in which sounds constitute our environment. I am interested specifically in studying how fourth year students in a Geography of Music course consider sound as constitutive of space. I am also interested in the ways people respond to certain environmental sounds. I have worked as a Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant, and I’ve even played some house league sports here. It was an important decision to come to Brock, and I think a smart one to do my Masters here."
