Dr. MacDonald is a transplanted east-coast Canadian, originally from the gentle island! His primary academic focus has, and always will be, the study of living things - prior to studying veterinary medicine (Atlantic Veterinary College), he completed his master's degree in plant pathology (University of Prince Edward Island). In addition to his fondness for life science, Dr. MacDonald is an average softball talent, noted film enthusiast, and bona fide plant-based cook. He has never owned a motor vehicle, preferring to walk or bike if the destination is not too far. He also has a peculiar fascination with the number 4 and the colour green.
