"Time Team" member now monitors fossils instead of freshmen

How did Colin Campbell, an art school grad who designs landscapes for a Baltimore video game firm, end up hosting Oregon Public Broadcasting's archeology show Time Team America? As he tells The Baltimore Sun: "I worked as a resident assistant, and before that as a desk monitor for a freshman dorm. And the guy who employed me in both of those roles eventually left MICA and went on to work in Portland, Ore. And the show's producers ... happened to call him asking if he knew anyone who would be good for this show, and he gave them my name. I actually like that story a lot, because it goes back to me working a $5-an-hour job and that sort of cascading into this event."
