A few of my passions...
Dunes: Any dune is fascinating, but Lake Michigan has some spectacular dunes.
Coasts: These are some of the most dynamic environments on earth.
Winter/cold regions:Too many people miss out on wonderful things because they avoid the cold.
Fieldwork: To really understand geomorphology, you need to spend time with the landforms and processes.
Teaching: Geography is a great discipline and it's a privilege to be able to share.
Fieldtrips: What better way is there to experience geography!
(Undergraduate) Student research: Students have the hands-on opportunity to learn and contribute to advancing knowledge.
Canada: Spectacular landscapes. Wonderful people.
(...and real winters, hockey, short elections, consistent metric use, Tim Horton's, poutine....) What's not to like?
