-Relevant information about children Madison and Jonathan are great friends and love new adventures. Everything is definitely a game when you're 6/7 years old.

-Your current and/or former position and duties Global Minerals Director, Amcol International Primary responsibilities include mineral exploration in Asia, Eastern Europe, Americas.

-Other personal details you wish to share A career away from academics has been both enjoyable and challenging. I have especially liked the added dimension of considering return-on-investment for all exploration and research activities. It truly makes one look at science and technology from different perspective. I only wish I would have spent more time in school studying economics!
