My name is Doctor Trowell.
I hold a Ph.D. in archaeology and have held 2 post docs since I graduated in 2010. In the past year I decided that applying for yet more jobs (I’ve already applied for 150) wasn’t cutting it and decided to join the US Navy for the next four years, and then try academia again when I get out.
I initially applied to go into aviation, but was told I was too old to be a pilot (and I was nearly too old to enter as an officer…the navy was the only branch of service that would take me), so anyway they looked at my transcripts (“you’re Indiana Jones!”) and tested me and put me in Navy Intelligence (go ahead and laugh). Hence my pseudonym.
I live (presently) in Florida but am assured that with the Navy I will be journeying around the world. I have 2 dogs, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and they come with me.
