I am finishing a field archaeology internship at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez,Colorado. It's been a great experience digging in the southwest over the past couple months! Next week I head back to Virginia, and I'll be interning in the repatriation department of the National Museum of the American Indian through the end of the year.

I am currently working as the FAO Schwarz Foundation Fellow at the
Museum of the City of New York. The Fellowship funds recent graduates to
work full-time for two years in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York in major
education-based nonprofits. At MCNY I educate school groups in guided school
programs as well as research, write, and develop new school programs drawing
from the Museum's exhibitions and collections.

A story about Dr. Voigt:
 
I took my senior seminar - Archaeology of Cities - with Dr. Voigt in fall of 2009.  It was a small class, but that made for an enriching and fun enviornment.  One day we were discussing definitions of civilization, and I (cheekily) commented - "Oh, and it's a computer game."  Dr. Voigt responded quickly - "Yes!  I play it every day."  Apparently Civilization - along with a hot cup of coffee - was a good way to wake up and get ready for a busy day at Gordion.
 
Whenever I think of this story it puts a smile on my face!
