My education, career, and passion is around geology and the Earth sciences! I am fascinated by how the Earth works, and how other sciences such as biology, ecology, chemistry, hydrology and even planetary geology help us understand the planet we live on. I also have extensive knowledge of the extraction and distribution of natural resources, and how that affects populations, cultures, and politics. I have seen geology up close in 40+ states and 10+ countries. I am accomplished at technical and business writing, and public speaking.
