About me:

I have participated in the excavation of pre-Incan structures, pre-Civil-War era rural sites, Roman era urban structures, inhumation tombs, and a pre-Roman era funerary cave. This work has taken me to Ecuador, Spain, and the United States.  Each setting required different excavation procedures.  However, in each excavation site, I engaged in the collection, preparation, and inventory of artifacts.  Depending on the site, those artifacts included: human and faunal remains, metal objects, and pottery, as well as other objects related to the use and history of the site.

I enjoyed all aspects of the experience. It was challenging being out in the field surveying, excavating, and collecting samples; but, also exciting and worth the effort to discover the past.  In addition, the laboratory work allowed me to better understand the sites and the lives of the people who were associated with them. 

As a university student, I volunteered at the archaeology lab at Columbia University, I was overcome by the idea of holding an object that someone had made, potentially, thousands of years ago.  It's an amazing feeling to connect with the past like that, and a moving one to consider the evolutionary and cultural history of our species.

Archaeology allows me to engage in my love of exploring and learning about the past; and, to do so with other individuals who share my passion.  I want to continue to immerse myself in the study of humanity's past through fieldwork, academic work, and museum work.  I would particularly like to share the immense and exciting world of cultural and biological human history with others by working in a museum. I intend to begin a program in museum studies through Northwestern University. It is an online program, so I will be free to work in any location around the world while I complete it.

I enjoy traveling, and would be willing to work in any environment.  I have worked in or visited: the United States, Japan, France, Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Turkey, Greece, Ecuador, Monaco, and most recently, Australia.
