My name is Gary Vecchiarelli. Ever since I was a kid, I've been fascinated by what prehistoric animals roamed my backyard.  Growing up in the Garden State gave me a great deal of appreciation for paleontology. I always was very passionate about researching my home state. New Jersey is one of the birth places for American paleontology.  There is so much to discover here!

​Later in life, I attended college where I majored in geology and paleontology. Being a working student, I bartended many long days and nights to pay for my education.  Hence the name of my site, "Drinking with Dinosaurs."  This website will forever be a work in progress. I hope you'll find your time here informative as well as entertaining. Welcome to Drinking with Dinosaurs!
