_DSC0365Over the past 15 years I have enjoyed serving in many roles related to cultural heritage preservation, material culture and archaeology including non-profit, educational and private practice environments. In addition to private work I am currently a PhD candidate at Victoria University Wellington in the Museum and Heritage Studies program. My specialty is working with sites and objects in coastal and maritime environments, although I have been fortunate to work with a variety of materials and in locations from the Arctic to the Antarctic and across the Middle East and Africa. I created this blog to share some of my experiences and to provide tools to people looking to learn about cultural heritage conservation.
