Hi! I’m Mike Rhea, and I’m a professional Geologist with over 12 years of experience. I have a passion for collecting and tumbling rocks with my daughter, as well as traveling the world with my wife to see all sorts of geologic wonders.
I attended the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!) where I earned my degree in Petroleum Geology. I have done field work in Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. I always enjoyed trips to the field while I was in school and, of course, I loved my geology field camp right before I graduated. This site is a way for me to share my love of rocks with the world.
I have traveled all over the US and the world exploring nature and checking out cool geology wherever I can find it. From the Grand Canyon to Kilimanjaro, I can’t get enough of what Mother Nature has to offer.
I am also really into powerlifting and dabble in computer programming. If there is a bigger fan of Oklahoma football I haven’t met him or her yet. I hope you enjoy this site!
