A Picture of Sarah Weitman

Sarah graduated from the University of Georgia in 2010 with a BA in Anthropology and from Georgia Southern University in 2012 with her MA in Social Science (focus in Anthropology). She wrote my thesis on using archaeological survey methods to map and record the data in cemeteries. Sarah is currently working with a non-profit located in the small town where she grew up, outside of Savannah, GA. She works as a volunteer with organizations like the Georgia Southern Botanical Garden and The Unchained Tour. A self proclaimed geek, she reads a lot (books and comics) and watch too many tv shows. She likes adventures and being outdoors, preferably in the sun. Usually can be found with at least one camera on her person.

Sarah's love of music comes more from her dad and probably started when he would lull her to sleep as a baby with the dulcet tones of Huey Lewis and the News. Between that and and his vinyl collection, a place for classic rock was made in her heart. When she moved to Athens, Sarah fell in love with live music because of a friend and it has stuck ever since. If her iPod was anthropomorphic it would have an identity crisis because of the variety of music on it. Her top three artists these days (in no particular order) are Josh Ritter, Gomez and Modern Skirts. But that may change tomorrow. Or the day after.
