My passion and work is in cultural and feminist geography, and understanding how race works in the city.  Vancouver is rich with fascinating people and stories. Sense of Place is for Vancouverites who are ready to dive deep into a world of greater understanding.  Oh, and I also just happen to love pop culture, particularly TV dramas. I understand the value and importance of place and belonging.  It’s what citizens long for. Unfortunately, isolation and marginalization continue to exist in Vancouver. Why? We'll find out. The reality is, locations hold meaning.  And histories.  By connecting with our communities, we connect with each other. I intend to look beyond the obvious, to question even the seemingly good work. We'll be edgy, provocative & pithy.  How do we chart out creative serendipity in our city? With that framing, I’ll take you through conversations with ‘unlikely allies’, ‘tempered radicals’ and those facing major personal ‘turning points’.
