I am a recently graduated Navajo student with a B.A. in Archaeological Studies. Over the past three years, I have gained experience working at a wide variety of sites both domestic and international. I have received a firm grounding in the fundamentals of archaeological excavation, survey, and analysis, and am quick to learn new techniques and technologies. My personal interests rest predominantly in the areas of landscape archaeology, archaeological survey, and the incorporation of GIS with archaeology. I wish to work with a CRM firm or long-term (6-12 months) project in order to apply my skills on a consistent basis, and would prefer the West and Four Corners regions, although I am prepared to work in other parts of the country. I believe the combination of my strong field experience, education, and the simple desire to add to what I already know would make me a competitive candidate for any upcoming archaeological project. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at the above address.
