2018-08-23T14:29:13-04:00

As discussed in my last post, I recently completed my UNT applied anthropology thesis and plan to blog about that experience.

Sequencing.com: My Ethnography Thesis Client

2018-09-09T16:13:53-04:00

After selecting a topic for my ethnography project, and reaching out to potential clients, I eventually narrowed the potential opportunities down to my final selection, Sequencing.com.

2018-08-03T16:50:44-04:00
