About Andrew Larsen
Andrew Larsen is in the Masters in Applied Archaeology program. Andrew grew up in Denver and enjoyed a variety of outdoor mountain sports such as skiing, backpacking, mountain biking and rock climbing. Andrew’s passion for the Colorado mountains brought him to Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado where he graduated in 2009 with a BA degree in Anthropology focusing on archaeology. Since his undergraduate studies, Andrew has been continuously employed as a contract archaeologist for a variety of Cultural Resource Management (CRM) firms and has worked in nine western states but primarily in northern New Mexico and Arizona, as well as southwest Colorado. Andrew’s CRM experience has allowed him to progress to a field director role overseeing projects ranging from small surveys to large scale excavations, as well as technical report writing and project management duties including permitting, proposal writing and budgeting. Andrew hopes to further his career in archaeology by incorporating his CRM experience into his graduate studies in order to foster his interests in ancestral and modern Pueblo cultures.
