I have been doing geological, paleontological, and archaeological work for approximately 11 years. I currently work for an environmental consulting firm performing geological and paleontological assessments, and groundwater studies for development and energy projects in the western states. My research in paleontology has been focused on mammals of the Cenozoic, and morphology of proboscideans. I also continue to work as an archaeologist, with expertise in southwest prehistoric cultures, such as Hohokam and Sinagua. As a consultant I have performed numerous archaeological surveys, data recovery projects, and excavations in the southwest.

Great tutor I could not ask for a better tutor! Michael gave detailed examples on the information I was confused on. He made sure I understood every single item, illustrating some in sketches, notes, etc. Worth the time, money, and effort! Highly recommend Michael for any of your tutoring needs! ...
