Nicholas Eberle-Taylor is 9 years old and in 3rd Grade at University Hill Elementary in Boulder, Colorado. He plays hockey for the Hyland Hills Jaguars and takes piano lessons at Parlando School for the Arts, where he is learning to play the blues. Nicholas has several summers of paleontological field experience under his belt, having accompanied his mother to the Arctic in utero and he completed his first field season in Colorado at 8 months old. Having said all of that, Nicholas has admitted that he does NOT want to be a paleontologist. Rather, he plans to be a storm chaser/race car driver and open his own aquarium for cephalopods (especially squid!). However, Nicholas has promised to help his mother look for fossils on weekends.
