I am a musician by education and training, and a lifelong collector of whatever rocks happened to be in the vicinity where I was making my home at any given time. Since I have mostly lived in the Ozarks of Arkansas and Missouri, and more recently in the plains of central Oklahoma, most of my collection comes from those locations.

For the past three years I've been most interested in three kinds of rocks that one can collect in central Oklahoma. Two of those types are alluvial: the material that washes down the Canadian River from New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle, and the chert breccia known as "Boley agate," which can be found about fifty miles east of Norman, where I currently reside. The remaining type is the rocks that are found in the Arbuckle fold belt (which includes the Ordovician-Period Slick Hills just north of the Wichita Mountains) - mostly calcite and pyrite.

My primary aim, so far as the Mindat site is concerned, is to fill in some gaps by publishing photos of material that's unrepresented or underrepresented. All of the material I've photographed has been self-collected within the past five years.

I have held musical posts with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and several other orchestras, and academic posts at Missouri State University, Drury University, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Oklahoma where I now teach.
