I am a CT mineral collector, but have collected in other New England states as well as the mid atlantic and midwest states. My collection includes a large amount of beryl and other pegmatite minerals. My specialty is tourmaline, and I have collected some very nice Elbaites from Maine. I am a field collector by trade, and have experience in many collecting situations from opening intact pegmatite pockets to searching for geodes on Kentucky sand bars.

Growing up in southwestern PA, I learned how to dig in the soft mud and clay, and that carried on into my current obsession. I collected fossils every once in a while. When I moved to CT, I was finally able to find the minerals I am currently working with today, the great pegmatite minerals! I am also currently engaged in finding new localities, as well as documenting those that have been lost. I have documented multiple new and under-explored localities, as well as well as making interesting finds at frequented places. Some of my other hobbies are fishing, hiking, and camping.

For any help anyone wants involving Connecticut localities or minerals, feel free to contact me via private message on mindat.
