I am a broadly trained and experienced archeologist and cultural resource manager. My professional experience includes academic, federal agency, and contract environments. 


My academic background includes a Bachelor of Arts in History with distinction from Hendrix College, a Master of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, and was a Doctoral Scholar in Anthropology/Archeology while continuing to work in the field. My anthropological skills also include ethnographic fieldwork, museum studies and ethnohistorical research and writing.​ I am skilled in historiography, historical research, and writing with primary and secondary sources, and have extensively studied numerous periods of history and prehistory. 

In the Cultural Resource Archeology (CRM) profession, I have worked in large corporate, small business, and federal land management environments. Project areas have included transportation right-of-ways, lake expansions, riparian area repair, linear pipelines, seismic corridors, timber stands, recreation areas, communication towers, commercial development areas, site salvage, etc. 

I meet and exceed the Secretary of Interior's Standards defining education and experience required to perform identification, evaluation, registration, and treatment activities as a professional Archeologist and Historian. I know the importance of hard work, being cost effective, and creating high quality deliverables.

Ethics and Responsibility to Clients

An archaeologist shall not:

-reveal confidential information, unless required by law;

-use confidential information to the disadvantage of the client or employer;
