I am currently a University Lecturer in Paramedicine at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia.

Previous Work Experience:

From 2004 to 2011 I worked as a full time Paramedic Instructor for the College of the North Atlantic - Qatar - a Canadian college teaching the Primary Care Paramedic program in the Middle East.  There I authored a complete revision of the paramedic program which made it a joint EMT-I/PCP program.

From 1990 to 2004, I was a Canadian Paramedic in the city of Toronto working for Toronto EMS.  I worked as an Emergency Medical Attendant (4 yrs), Advanced Care Paramedic (4 yrs) and a Critical Care Paramedic (5 yrs).  In addition to working for the City of Toronto I have experience working as a private industrial paramedic and as a flight paramedic repatriating Canadians.

Prior to entering into EMS I worked as a professional Scientific Demonstrator for the Ontario Science Centre.

Previous Educator Experience:

In addition to being a Field Training Officer for Toronto EMS,  I have taught for the Sunnybrook Base Hospital Program Flight Academy and both taught and did course development for the Michener Institute in Toronto.  For five years I was an ACLS Instructor for the Sunnybrook Hospital ACLS program and became their first non-physician Course Director.  I created the first ACLS program for Humber College, was its first Course Director, and I sat on the Paramedic Program Advisory Board for Georgian College, in Ontario, helping to create it's PCP program. I am a certified 12 Lead ECG Instructor and a PHTLS Instructor.

Previous Professional Experience:

I was one of the founding Directors of the Ontario Paramedic Association and sat as both the Registrar and the Director of Research and Education. For several years I sat on the Editorial Advisory Board, and wrote a regular column for Canadian Emergency News, our national EMS magazine. I also run, a website that provides free educational content for working paramedics.

Academic Credentials:

I have completed a Teaching and Training Adult Certificate from Georgian College and have completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree in Pre-Hospital Care from Charles Sturt University. In September of 2008 I began the Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology Program at Yorkville University and am in the process of completing my final thesis.
