My lifelong love of science began when I was five years old. Like many five year olds, I was obsessed with dinosaurs. I decided that when I grew up, I wanted to be a scientist and dig up dinosaur bones. I never outgrew that obsession, and it led me to a career in museum education, and eventually to digging dinosaur bones with several famous paleontologists, but that was only the beginning.
Why I decided to become a scientist
A monster movie and two toys started my journey into science education, with a LOT of help along the way from my parents, mentors, and friends.
How I approach science and religion on this site.
I get quite a few questions about this, so I put it into this video.
Our Home in Johnson Canyon
The move from the beach in Florida to this canyon in Southwest Utah was a big change, and we are loving every minute of it.
Our Happy Animals
Many of you have asked about the animals that periodically show up in my videos, especially in the bloopers, so I decided to put up a page to let you get to know them.
