We have been a couple since late 2001, and married since 2008. We both have a thriving passion for knowledge about humanity and the universe. The physical and social sciences are domains we enjoy exploring to feed our appetite for existential knowledge. This blog will primarily function as a means to connect with family and friends while we are abroad. As I (Erin) will be earning my graduate degree, and as I am working in a field that studies different cultures, travel is an important part of this work. This blog will keep us all connected!
Erin: I earned my BA in Anthropological Archaeology from UCSD. I am nearly finished with my certificate in Archaeological Excavation and my certificate in Archaeological Surveying and Laboratory Assistance. I have done volunteer work and internships at local museums. Ideally, my focus is on conservation of archaeological and ethnographic materials. I look forward to every challenge and I’m excited to share my experiences with friends and family!
Mike: I’ve always been something of an autodidact. And I’ve always been a little obsessed with mythology, folklore, and history. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in 3D animation to satisfy my urge to create things; especially things related to mythology. For the same reason I’ve taken up blacksmithing and tinkering around in my grandpa’s workshop. Part of me always wished I would have gone into academia and studied to be an anthropologist. Although, I really don’t think I would have been as happy in that field. But I can still live vicariously through my wife and pretend that I understand all of the concepts that she’s learning as she drags me around the world on her adventures. That’s one of the many reasons we make perfect partners on our quest for what we love most, knowledge.
