I am a long-term fossil enthusiast with a passion for both ethically collecting and restoration/preparation work. I enjoy sharing this hobby with people who have the same affliction.  I am dedicated to helping amateurs (as they feel led) improve their ability to prep fossils, ID specimen names and formations and improving the relationships between amateurs and professionals.
