I am an Associate Professor in the Visual Arts Department at Brock University (St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada) where I teach courses in the history of art and visual culture. I am also a Faculty Affiliate in Brock’s Social Justice & Equity Studies graduate program and a member of the Faculty Steering Committee for the Social Justice Research Institute at Brock. I am currently serving as the Chair of the Advisory Council for the National Museum of Animals & Society.

When I’m not teaching, writing, doing research, or academic administrative work you might find me volunteering at a farm sanctuary, rescuing cats, working in the garden, or cooking vegan food. I am also the co-founder of Niagara VegFest.
