For that last two decades I've divided time between academic interests and professional research. My background includes degrees in Anthropology and Education, with emphasis in Instructional Technology and Cross-Cultural Language and Development.
My fieldwork focus includes socio-cultural and archaeological contexts, NAGPRA legislation, cultural conservancy, prehistoric art, osteological labwork, and faunal analysis. In recent years I've recorded and documented folklore in the Pacific Northwest, with an emphasis on multi-generational immigrant experience within families, oral tradition and kinship structures.
