EDUCATION


2000-2001: Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois. Graduate school working toward an MA in Geography, specializing in GIS with a focus on remote sensing.


1
991-1995: Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois. I received a BA in Anthropology with a focus on Archaeology and Physical Anthropology.


ADDITIONAL SKILLS

Supervisory: I have supervised archaeological field crews of up to 45 people on phase III projects. I have had experience supervising small carpentry and archaeological survey crews. I have spent many years training others in work setting as well as a classroom environment. I have a very flexible/ adaptable management style that is fluid depending on the situation and obstacles of each particular project. 


Mechanical: During my working career I have had the opportunity to learn to repair small engines: chain saws, lawn mowers and hydraulic pump engines. I have had occasions to gain skills repairing automobiles: rebuilding engines, brakes, exhaust, wiring and changing various parts. I have spent time reading and interpreting many types of technical drawings such as blue prints, CAD drawings, schematics as well as computer-generated reports.


Carpentry: Early in my working career, I worked for over 7 years in all aspects of residential carpentry, performing precise measurement and marking of materials for cutting. Much of the time was spent performing precise cutting and shaping of building materials with hand and or power tools. The majority of the remaining work was spent erecting wood framework, installing sub flooring, sheeting, partitions, floor joists, studding, and rafters, installing trim, wood paneling, sheet rock, cabinets, windows, doors, hardware, siding, roofing and flooring. These skills have served me well in archaeology as a lot of the equipment has to be constructed and repaired in the field.

Tools/equipment used: Some of the equipment that I’ve acquired some skill with include the forklift, terra mite, end loader, knuckle boom, bobcat, air compressor, jackhammer, reciprocating saw, chainsaw, circular saw and welder as well as too many others to fully list. I have used this experience in designing, building and implementing water screening operations as well as self-supporting wooden landings for a dual gantry system with 800 lb. load every 2 minutes on each gantry landing.

Archaeological: During my archaeological career there have been varied locations, project types and skill sets developed. The average day is spent surveying, site recording, mapping, interpreting maps, doing research, excavating, as well as doing data collection, processing and interpretation. Some of the field work has consisted of navigating through rough terrain in over 20 states, using a compass, maps and aerial photographs. Some of the more specialized projects resulted in my excavation of over 80 historic and prehistoric burials.

Administrative: The office and lab portion of my career has been spent creating, preparing and reviewing various detailed forms and documents. I have been involved a vast amount of detailed cataloging, tracking and organizing very large inventories. I have experience doing records checks at county courthouses and libraries as well as preparing written reports and charts on a variety of subject matter

Computer: The computer experience I have consists of the use of Microsoft Office; Excel, Word, Power Point, Arc view GIS, CAD programs and Photo shop as well as doing research on the Internet.

Logistics: I have spent a lot of time working various interested parties including clients, civil survey, land agents, equipment rental, environmental crews, motel reservations and geo-morphological services as well as members of the one call system with one joint meet involving 22 individual entities in St. Louis.

Well it's time to look for another archaeological project. If you have need for a temporary project length term field director or crew chief give me a call or email. I can even come up with a good crew to bring with me with a few days notice.

Project was postponed by 2 months. Looking for a couple of positions somewhere not frozen.
