About me
I have been interested in nature, photography, geology, and lapidary since my grandfather taught me how to cut and polish stones when I was eight years old.
I belong to several west coast lapidary societies and have displayed my work at many local, state associations, & fairs.
I have won awards at the California State Federation Show and the “Best in Show” ribbon at the LA County Fair.

Experience & Research
I worked for a geologist in Central Mexico mapping, locating, and collecting samples for a mining company to locate new sources of gold, silver, and copper.

I did research of old publications from my grandfather's library and Dibblee Geology Maps to locate the best potential collecting locations for local specimens
Lead field trips for local lapidary societies and private collectors.
I have given presentations about the local materials that I have discovered to several California lapidary societies. I also volunteer as a docent for the Malibu Creek State Park and have led their geology hikes since 2011.

General meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 7PM at the 

Downtown Anaheim Community Center

250 East Center Street, Anaheim, CA 92805

 

The April meeting is normally rescheduled as the Center is

closed for Maintenance.

Non-members are welcome at the General meetings, in fact we are glad to have an opportunity to show you a little bit of what the Searchers is about.

Standard meeting format is an overview of club activities followed by an educational presentation.
