From a very early age I have had an unrelenting passion for dinosaurs. I began volunteering in the fossil lab at Chicago's Field Museum and later for Dr. Paul Sereno. After receiving my degree in Graphic Design, I started working full time for Dr. Sereno at the University of Chicago, combining the science of paleontology with art. I am currently a Fossil Preparator in his lab where I have hands-on access to the many important specimens and holotypes. I have also made several sculpted flesh models which are our extrapolations of the specimens studied. Broadening my experiences beyond the lab and studio, I have also participated in expeditions to Wyoming, Utah, Montana and the Sahara Desert.
