Retired mechanical engineer specializing in project management. I have been fortunate to have authored or been listed as co-author on a number of refereed journal papers on the local paleontology. I volunteer at the Geier Collections and Research Center, a part of the Cincinnati Museum Center. My most applicable interest outside of fossils is photography. I did wedding photography on a small scale years ago but most of my recent work has been in the macro world photographing fossils.
