Field work is one of the most important parts of the job for almost all paleontologists and geologists. I have spent almost the last decade completing field work throughout various places, most of them in the Eastern United States.

Much of my earlier field work dealt with invertebrates closer to home in Pennsylvania. The majority of this field work and fossil collecting focused on the Ordovician and the Devonian, with a bit of work at Red Hill, PA, a locality known for some of the earliest tetrapods known.

Later, after volunteering and being hired at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, I spent several summers conducting field work in the Late Cretaceous of the San Juan Basin in northwest New Mexico.
