Hello from Jeff. My blog is about extremophiles. Extremophiles are animals and organisms that exist and thrive in extreme environments. Having lived, worked, traveled and experienced many different environments, I am something of an extremophile myself. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Earth Science (including oceanography, geology, climatology and astronomy). A minor in Urban Studies including the effects of climate and environment on the existence of urban areas.

I have experienced a wide range of employment positions in many industries. I was a supervisor on drilling rigs for a company that built nuclear and coal fired power plants. I collected and categorized subsurface soil and rock samples. I traveled to different locations around the U. S. Working in cow pastures in Wisconsin in winter, and collecting soil samples from the bottom of the Ohio River on a barge offshore from a nuke plant was all just very normal.

I have physically traveled approximately half way around the globe. Ranging from Hawaii to Western Europe. From Canada to the Caribbean. From Sweden to the Greek Islands. The accumulated experience from my travels and employment gave me a wide range of knowledge. I have witnessed extreme events from multiple hurricanes, floods, wild fires, blizzards, and other record setting situations.
