I grew up outdoors in the backwoods of Western Pennsylvania fascinated with the natural world. From the age of five I wanted to be an Archaeologist.

I have many interests but the overlying theme behind my research is to “seek the fringes of overlap between disciplines as this is where the greatest scientific discoveries are made” to paraphrase my mentor from Kent State.
