A California native, I am from the San Francisco Bay Area. I have lived in CA most of my life, with a short stint in New Orleans for my undergraduate education. Within California, I have lived in LA, San Luis Obispo, and the Bay Area.

I have traveled throughout California, and have extensive field knowledge of the geology of this diverse and exciting state. Part of the reason I came back to CA is the nature of the rocks and landforms here.  Numerous earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and many other phenomena have shaped the California landscape and inspired me to pursue geology as a career.

Come take a geology class - you'll see how much fun geology can be. It's interesting, exciting, inherently relevant to life in California, and did I mention interesting and exciting??
