Brian Grimwood, Born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario at the southern point of Lake Huron and the mouth of the St. Clair River, Bryan now resides with his family in Kitchener, Ontario, a short hike to the shores of the Grand River. In addition to being prominent features in the landscapes Bryan has inhabited, rivers are also central to his personal and professional travel experiences as a canoe tripper, outdoor educator, and guide. Over the last decade, rivers have assumed another layer of meaning as a context for carrying out research (i.e., learning with others) about geographically informed notions of nature-culture, ethics, and mobility. During his Master of Arts degree (2005) in Recreation and Leisure Studies at Brock University, Bryan explored the nature experiences of river travel guides. His PhD dissertation (2011) in Geography at Carleton University extended from this work by considering culturally diverse uses, relationships, and responsibilities associated with recreation/tourism and inhabitation along the Thelon River in Arctic Canada. River systems continue to be centre stage in Bryan’s current research and teaching role as Assistant Professor in the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies at the University of Waterloo.
