Dunn graduated from Colorado State University in 1995 with a B.S.
in biological sciences. Since then she has turned migratory and finds
herself roaming the Colorado Plateau searching for the perfect job.
Extremely versatile, she has worked in a toxicology lab doing biological
research, guided river trips on many of Coloradoís rivers, and has
taught skiing to unruly, squirming youngsters trapped in Steamboat
Springs. Her travels have forced her to be mobileóshe has lived in
more than 13 places in the past 18 months and is thankful for her
Subaru. Somewhere along this journey, her interests have turned toward
paleontology and geology, and that led her to the Denver Basin Project.
Paul Harnick received his B.A. in
geology with a minor in history from Oberlin College in Ohio in
1998. "Go west young man" someone said, and Paulís days
of quietly walking the streets of Ithaca, New York were over. Four
days of driving a slow rambling path across the United States brought
Paul to his destiny as an intern on the Denver Basin Project. Being
the Appalachian Trail hiker, clog dancer, and guitar plucker that
he is, Paul is not your typical New Yorkeróheís actually from Baltimore.
Paul strives daily to get eight hours of sleep after being forced
onto the first week of the graveyard shift. Among Paulís aspirations
are buying more fiddle music CDs and finding his lifeís direction
within the coming year.
Shannon Romo is a senior at the University
of Colorado-Boulder where she is completing a B.S. in the Department
of Evolutionary, Population, and Organismic Biology. She was minding
her own business and volunteering in the paleobotany collection
at the Denver Museum of Natural History when she was vacuumed up
by the Denver Basin Project.
hails from Bellingham, Washington, where he received his B.S. in
geology at Western Washington University. Although Rich is adapting
quite well to Coloradoís climate, he still carries his umbrella
and goulashes. Apparently he was a little confused when Kirk spoke
of a rainforest in Kiowa. Richís new pastime involves meticulously
cleaning core segments and making appearances in local newspapers.
This Carhart-clad geowizard is easily recognized by the core barrel
he carries on his shoulder. Rick will be attending graduate school
in the fall, but the school itself remains to be chosen.
