I have also worked at the Bowers Museum and Kidseum of Santa Ana for a year as well as various college art galleries on the east coast.

Little John Archaeological Intern (Aug 2009) Beaver Creek, YT, Canada
            At Little John, I was a volunteer near the close of the season. While there I was in charge of my own excavation squares, completed artifact analysis, and worked numerous test pit excavations. The work also included travel and surveys of other sites near and across the Alaska-Canada border as well as ethnographic research with the White River First Nation.


Rio Bravo Archaeological Field School (June-July 2007) Orange Walk District, Belize
      As my first hands-on experience in archaeology, I learned to set up an excavation area, take soil samples, identify cultural and biological remains, how to record finds, and how to clean and analyze Post-classical Mayan artifacts. This field school also gave me experience in performing surface and topographical surveys throughout unmapped terrain with the use of GIS and a total data station.
