I was trained in cartography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and began my professional cartography career at the National Park Service. I then went on to work at an independent cartography company, creating maps for clients like the U.S. Forest Service, the National Park Service, and private companies. Following my time at the National Park Service, I earned my M.S. in Geography, where I created mapping & viz products for community disaster recovery during my work as a data visualization designer for Western Washington University’s Resilience Institute.
Today I work at a large geospatial software company where I provide mapping and data-visual solutions for global customers. I have an appreciation for well-established cartographic standards and rules, but I am also eager to push and bend those rules.
When I am not mapping and designing, I am rock climbing, running, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.
