I have been interested in geology since a child in the mid 1960's. In 1982 I received a bachelor's degree in geology, 1989 M.A.T. (Master of Arts in Teaching) in Earth Science. I worked as curator at the Museum of History and Science (now the Louisville Science Center) 1985 - 1993. Among my tasks while there, curating the Gerard Troost mineral collection (pre-1850 minerals) and acquiring the Tharp collection (1870's - 1950's).
Today I work as an interpretive naturalist at the Falls of the Ohio State Park (world-famous paleontological site).

My interests in minerals are broad. These days they include geode minerals, the IL-KY fluorspar district (and related minerals from other locales), calcite, fluorite, pegamatites, and self-collected micromounts. I have a large catalogued collection. Exchanging specimens is a favorite winter activity and I have a large stock of primarily self-collected minerals (and fossils).

Sharing knowledge has always been a goal. That is why I have written articles for the Mineralogical Record, Rocks and Minerals and Mineral News. Uploading photos of minerals and localities as well as adding locality information is a way for me to keep this up.
