Recent Highlight: The Wall Street Journal published a short review of The Guide to Walden Pond by Danny Heitman on April 11, 2018. .
My colleagues, students, readers, audiences, and clients know me as a:
- PROFESSOR of Geology, juggling teaching, scholarship, and service.
- SPEAKER and field trip leader on a range of topics.
- CONSULTANT for diverse projects: field geo-forensics, museums, and public education.
Away from work, I'm a husband, father, son, friend, and solitary soul whose principal hobbies are Nature, reading, writing, cooking, and public television.
