I am a second year graduate student at Colorado State University where I am pursuing a Public History degree which I will complete in May 2018. I am also completing my thesis for an Master of Arts in American History through American Military University and will graduate from that program in Feb 2018. My thesis is focused on the expeditions of Major John Wesley Powell to the American West in 1867 - 1875.

I am currently considering what I will do after my masters program and am considering either a history or archaeology PhD program. This is my second career as i retired from the US Army after 22 years in 2016. I have been working with a number of digital history tools in my research the last two years and hope to move forward in employing them in the coming year.
