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.
