I've written books on camping and wilderness survival, a series of children's books about boats, and dozens of articles for boating, business, and outdoor magazines and newspapers. I blog about boats from non-Western cultures at IndigenousBoats.com. I hold Masters degrees in Marine Affairs from University of Rhode Island and Maritime Archaeology from University of Southampton. For my Masters dissertation in archaeology, I conducted the first broad analysis of logboat repairs in Britain and Ireland. My PhD work focuses on the dugout canoes of the Warrau people of Guyana.
