I am a Canadian Aquanaut, analog astronaut, engineer, scientist, diver and researcher based out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. As an avid space, sea and exploration enthusiast, I recently completed a 6 day, 5 night underwater scientific research mission off the coast of Key Largo, Florida. During this mission, we performed neurological tests, sleep and morale studies to further the understanding of what happens to the human body in Isolated, Confined and Extreme (ICE) environments. In 2018, I was part of a 14 day analog astronaut mission at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah. During my time there, I developed and built a water-less dishwasher using ultraviolet light to reduce the water consumption of our crew during our time in simulation. I share my passion for exploration through various forms of outreach and scientific communication. From underwater, I appeared on CBC Saskatchewan television and radio to share about our research mission and show a glimpse into what it’s like to live underwater. I am a member of the Explorer’s Club and spoke in-person at their New York Headquarters with our team about our mission as part of their “What’s on Tap” series. I have appeared on multiple podcasts and spoken to school classrooms to share my experiences and foster the excitement that I have for space exploration in others. I currently work as the Director of Strategy and Innovation with the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
