I am a folklore professor at Memorial University. My work is balanced between two geographic areas: Newfoundland (especially the folklore of Newfoundland communities outside of Newfoundland - Ontario, Alberta, Pennsylvania, Virginia...), and Cuba (where I'm researching an ethnography of Havana's queer community and its underground economies). I also work with music (ethnomusicology) and popular culture. That said, if you have any questions about Newfoundland culture, heritage, or migration - I'm your man. If you're interested in the realities to Cuban socialism, grab some whiskey and a cigar, and we can talk all night!
More personally, you'll probably find me quite quiet, but always ready for interesting conversation. I travel a lot - as much as time and money permit. I'm also very interested in historic preservation, as you'll discover with my house and with some of the restored furniture inside. If you visit during the academic year, you may not see a whole lot of me (depending on work commitments). I do work from home a lot - but usually hidden away in my home office.
