Additional Information

As an undergraduate in Anthropoogy, I specialized in Archaeology. While never official occupations, I did work several years in a zooarchaeology lab, cleaning, recording, and articulating animal bones from our collection. Further I spent two summers in the field, one as a student, one as an assistant, working on cultural and historical resource management. With this experience came use of GPS, GIS, and analog technologies; as well as experience living and working in very remote, rugged areas of the northern Rocky mountains in the United States.
