about Brian Thom
I am an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Victoria.
My wife Karen Fediuk is an award-winning researcher who works on Indigenous food systems (www.karenfediuk.ca). We are parents of two fine young men.
I am on several social media channels (below), though Facebook is mainly for family and friends.
I have played D&D since the late 70s, and ran a long-time campaign [blog] now in hiatus. I look forward to playing again...
