I have been a mineral collector since about 1971. My first collecting trip that started it all was to Agoura, California, to collect ferrierite on clinoptilite. I have been at it ever since. I like to field collect but am not opposed to silver picking rocks for my collection, especially when I don’t think I will be able to collect equivalent, get to that locality, or I like the piece.

I worked 20 years as manager for Jewel Tunnel Imports (a mineral import company, wholesale; Rock H Currier, chief factotum and hatchet man). In 1997 I went to work for a networking company, where I am today, but that is ending. In March of 2011 I started working for Open Adit West in Tucson, Arizona.

I enjoy making maps to assist with education on mineral localities and collecting. I am currently the Associate Cartographer for Rocks & Minerals magazine.

Education: MS (Geology), California State University Los Angeles , my thesis was Mineral Paragenesis of the Grand Reef Mine Aravaipa Mining District, Graham County, Arizona, August 1981. BA (Geography) with concentration in air photo interpretation and cartography.
