Driving my research is asking, "What makes it work? How is it put together? What makes it what it is?"


Who am I, really?

Click on thumbnails in the mini-portfolio below to see some featured projects from my long and varied career. I've worked continuously as a vertebrate paleontologist/anatomist, a world renown fossil CT data analyst, an expert in dinosaur brain and ear evolution, a burgeoning aviation historian, an animator/cartoonist, and a visual communicator. Behind each image below, you'll find a video, animation, image, or story. I've worn, and continue to wear a lot of hats, and this portfolio shows my broad professional interests.
