I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, with aspirations of being an all-American collegiate linebacker for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. That didnít work out, so I got my B.S. in Geology at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. After completing my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of California, Davis, I took a post-doctoral research position at Southern Methodist University in 2002. The post-doctoral experience went very well. I am now an assistant professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at Southern Methodist University.

My research interests primarily focus on paleoenvironmental reconstruction from lithostratigraphic and chemostratigraphic records of terrestrial rocks. I am especially interested in the morphology and chemistry of soil formation in both modern and ancient settings. When I am not working, I like gardening and hanging out with my best friend and wife, Meredith.
