Austral Summer 2014-2015
West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divide Field Camp (WAIS)
From December 2014 – January 2015, I worked at the WAIS Divide Ice Core Field Camp for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center as an Ice Drilling Design and Operations group Field and Drill Specialist. I lived in a remote field camp in Antarctica working on a small team to disassemble, package, ship, and store the large DISC Drill.
Austral Summer 2012-2013
Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station
During the Austral Summer of 2012-2013, I traveled to Antarctica to work as a Cook for Gana-A’Yoo, EMT, Tour Guide, and Photojournalist at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. While I was living there, I took over 10,000 photos, hours of video footage, and published an article about life in Antarctica on my blog every single day.
