About

As a historian and armchair archaeologist, I have traveled for 17 years to the deepest corners of our ancient past in search of lost civilizations all over our planet. I have had the privilege of doing so with some of the foremost archaeologists and scientists in the world.

Today, I enjoy the honor of serving on the Director’s Council of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), and as a Board Member of the Medieval & Renaissance Center at California State University in Long Beach (CSULB).

As a writer and photographer, I have enjoyed the pleasure of writing and photographing for the Cotsen Institute’s prestigious journals, in addition to over 150 business and marketing clients around the country.

Life on the canals in Long Beach, California with my husband is one of social, culinary, and sailing delights.
