Bio

A four-field anthropologist and Emmy™ Award winning filmmaker, Arik graduated (with Honors) from California State University, Chico in 2014, receiving his B.A. in Anthropology, along with certificates in Museum Studies and Cultural Resource Management. In 2011, he received his A.A. in Behavioral and Social Sciences (with Honors) and certificate in Classical Studies from Butte College in northern California. During his undergrad, Arik participated in pioneering programs using 3D technology and visual media to protect and learn from cultural resources, and is constantly searching for new ways of incorporating the technological innovations of the 21st Century to enhance the learning potential and quality of his research. He has performed archaeological fieldwork in the Caribbean, Great Basin, and Northern California Coast, along with ethnographic work in Central California and the Owen’s Valley. He is interested in expanding the Nautical Archaeologists’ toolkit by combining his skills as a documentary filmmaker with 3D mapping and modeling techniques for use in the field.
