Ok, so let’s try this daily blog meme for April. A to Z…you know how this works, I’m sure.

I’m going to use the alphabet thing, with a focus on where my work has taken me, places that I’ve been fortunate enough to visit, or cool things that I’ve gotten to do in this life.

Let’s start with “A”.


In 2009, I was given the chance to go up to the Arctic on the CCGS Amundsen to do some scientific research. I was up there with another colleague to take water and soil samples for analysis.

I was onboard for about two week and it was a wonderful experience…being on a machine that was designed to smash through ice that was metres thick.
