I am an American student in the MLitt in Celtic and Viking Archaeology program at the University of Glasgow. I became interested in experimental archaeology when I was 16, when I designed a flintknapping experiment as a student in school.
Giving lectures about Experimental Archaeology at the University of Hamburg since 2004, also in charge of the annual Experimental Archaeology Summer camp at the Stone Age Village of Albersdorf, Germany (AÖZA). Own Experiments on Neolithic Housing, ceramics, woodwork and textiles.
I am PhD student of Eurasian research department, South Ural State University (Chelyabisk, Russia), Director of experimental archaeology centre “Archaeos” (Chelyabisk, Russia) and Member of the Archaeological Foundation Board “Arkaim” (Russia).
I teach experimental archaeology in the Anthropology department at Humboldt State University, California. The labs and classes provide student insight into past technologies, helping them recognize the tools and evidence in the field.
I started the never-ending pursuit of lithic studies as a child. I spent 24 years in the USAF and never stopped that pursuit.
Starting my junior year at SUNY Potsdam, I enrolled in a course over the summer of 2015 with Dr. Timothy Messner in which myself and eight others completed the construction of a dugout canoe using only Paleoindian stone tool technology.
I earned my MA in Experimental Archaeology from the University of Exeter in 2015 with a focus on flaked stone technology. During which time I have participated in a number of OpenArch demonstrations at many participating archaeological open-air museums. I currently do a PhD in New-Zealand.
