I have nine years of experience in the field of archaeology, and have been involved in projects in 14 states (Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georigia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wyoming) across the United States. I have worked at all stages of investigation and on sites dating from the Pleistocene to the 20th Century.

For the past eight years, my research has focused primarily on historic period mortuary archaeology in the United States. As an independant contractor/consultant, prior to my employment with CRA, my mission was to assist clients in implementing cost-effective strategies for various aspects of their projects. My mission remains the same as an employee of CRA, and through the company, I am able to offer the same services as I did previously, along with additional services made possible with the added resources and personnel of CRA. Below you will find a list of services I am prepared to offer to interested clients. Please contact me to discuss your particular project. For a complete list of services offered by CRA, please visit the company website.
