I’ve had a passion to know more about people’s stories through place and time for as long as I can remember. As Archaeology Southwest’s Content & Communications Director and editor of Archaeology Southwest Magazine, I’m here to listen, learn, clarify, amplify, and advocate. Together, I hope we come to better understand and help protect and celebrate the rich evidence of people’s lives in and across this Sonoran Desert landscape I am privileged to live and work in.
I received a B.A. in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from the University of Chicago (1993) and an M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Arizona (1998). I undertook formal training in copy editing with Al Schroder of the University of Arizona Press. My mentors are Tobi Lopez Taylor and Emilee Mead.
On any given weekend, I may be found in my comfy chair, listening to AM oldies radio, with my nose in a book and a glass of red wine in my hand.
