I am geologist with a passion for vertebrate paleontology, especially dinosaurs. My love for paleontology began with my father taking me fossil hunting in the Cretaceous Navesink Formation of central New Jersey. I have published papers on the vertebrate taphonomy of large and important quarries in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation. I have also worked with Pliocene fossil horses. While working for an oil and gas company in Billings Montana, I became aware of this research and volunteered my geologic expertise to the project. I continue to spend evenings, weekends, holidays, and personal vacation time doing original research to understand the geology of the Morrison Formation in central Montana. We plan to present our research at scientific conferences and to publish our work in peer reviewed journals.
