Besides having a love for paleobiology, I consider myself to be an avid traveler, videographer/photographer, and writer. I live for summers spent between mountains and desert in search of fossils, and to experience the beauty of the American West.
I am a current graduate student studying biological sciences and evolution, ecology, and systematics at The George Washington University. I also have a passion for teaching and am concurrently pursuing a graduate degree in secondary biology education from Saint Joseph's University.
I have been part of this dig team for over half a decade and am now currently serving as Assistant Crew Chief. My field experiences have led me to Montana, Wyoming, New Jersey, and Southern Africa. I have also been fortunate to work and intern as a fossil preparator at both the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University (ANSP) and the New Jersey State Museum, and served as an informal educator at ANSP. I currently serve as a fossil preparator in the public and behind-the-scenes fossil preparation labs at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
