I was raised in Springfield, Ohio and graduated from the University of Evansville with a B.A. in archaeology in 2005. In the spring of 2008, under the guidance of William Parkinson, I obtained my master's in anthropology from Florida State. My thesis at FSU examined Denmark's Roman Iron Age political and economic complexity by investigating the changing settlement patterns of that period. In July 2009 I started working for the Seminole Tribe of Florida as a field technician. Over the years I have raised in the ranks and am currently the Tribal Archaeologist for the Tribe. Today my interests consists of determining the makeup and organization of the various prehistoric and historic camps in the interior of South Florida.
