About Me

Headshot in AkkoI am a Historical Archaeologist specializing in site research and evaluation and three-dimensional modeling for Historical Preservation. I received my Bachelors Degree in Anthropology with a specialization in Historical Archaeology from New College of Florida, and the subject of my Senior Thesis was the Archaeology of Ethnogenesis of the Seminole People of Florida. Currently, I am a Masters Degree Candidate in the Department of Jewish History at the University of Haifa under the direction of Dr. Ido Shahar. Professionally, I interned with the Seminole Tribe of Florida Tribal Historic Preservation Office in the Research Department (Summer 2009) and the International Conservation Center – Cittá di Roma located in Old Acre, Israel, where I received professional training and experience in the field of Historic Preservation and Conservation (Summer 2010, October 2012 – July 2013). I  worked as a field archaeologist on the Looking for Angola project in Bradenton, Florida, under Dr. Uzi Baram, the Live Oak site in Sarasota, Florida, under Dr. George Luer, and on the Tel Akko project under Dr. Ann Killebrew. I have also worked as a surveyor on the Galilee Cemetery project, a Historic Black cemetery, documenting the graves. In addition to working in the field of Historic Preservation and Research, I am an avid photographer.
