Research Interests

My research interests are varied, but converge where community (with its variety of definitions), the outdoor environment and health/wellness collide. As such, I have published in the areas of sport event management, volunteer management (motivation, recruitment, training, management, retention and legacy), snowsport safety, risk management, resort staff management and service management.
