I am originally from Virginia Beach, VA and attended James Madison University before coming to the University of Illinois to get my PhD. Outside of Archaeology I love sports, craft beer, and just generally being active.

Research Interests

  • Early Late Woodland Archaeology in Western Illinois

Research Description

My research focuses on the Early Late Woodland period in Western Illinois and how we can understand household activity and use during this period to better understand what is occurring across the larger social and physical landscape. My goal is to contribute further knowledge about this period to Archaeology as a field so we can better understand the dynamic processes that were happening in the Midwest throughout Pre-Columbian history.
