I received a double bachelor from SIUE in Anthropology and History. I was the graduate assistant for the SIUE historical archaeology field school in Virginia. I received my Masters in History from St. Louis University in January, 2006. I directed a field school on the Island of Malta for the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, Summer 2004. I also taught Archaeology for Leiden University for one year, (2004). Since graduation from SIUE I have worked on sites in the American MidWest, Virginia, Malta, Germany, and Thailand. Most of my work has been with historical archaeology of the colonial and/or post-medieval peroid.
I taught anthropology & archaeology for one year at McKendree College. Over the past year and a half I have been in Thailand. I taught one year for Assumption College in Samut Prakarn, which is near to Bangkok. My subject over here was Social Studies. Next I will be teaching in NE Thailand. Now I am working to help the people of NE Thailand in Isan to build a free library. The library is being built with the cooperation of local leaders in Isan and will be free to the public as well as providing free instruction. I am also still working on my Ph.D with University of Flinders in Australia. My free time is spent exploring the jungles of NE Thailand & Mekong River area.
