I am a field collector currently living in Denver, Colorado, working as a geologist for Freeport McMoRan at the Henderson Mine in Empire, CO. I collect anything that is euhedral and that I can haul home. I have been collecting crystals since 1999 and really have not figured out yet what I will ever do with the boxes I have accumulated.

Currently I am involved with crystal specimen mining projects in Washington, Nevada, California and others. I am very interested in specimen deposit mapping, geochemical understandings and exploration methods.

I am also a jeweler typically incorporating minerals into my work, although I have been known to stick with only metal.
