About the Book
I am a geologist. I was an international consultant for many years working on water wells and dams. I came to Las Vegas in 1989 and put down roots, working for consulting companies, including my own, on environmental and water supply projects. I have been active in geological organizations and community organizations.. From 2011-2014 I worked at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area for the Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association (RRCIA) as an interpretive naturalist-geologist. I confirmed the discovery of dinosaur footprints in the Jurassic rock and found a second dinosaur footprint site. I was inspired to write a children's book about a dinosaur that comes to life in Red Rock Canyon, teaming with local artist/photographer, Jon Kaplan. This book is for sale at Red Rock Canyon and the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. The print copy of the book on the geology and archaeology of Red Rock Canyon NCA and Spring Mountain Ranch State Park should be ready early in 2022.
