Maps, GIS, and Data

With a background in GIS and Computer Science, I maintain a keen interest in all things geospatial. Location is a medium we all deal with and leveraging that information to understand the world around us is powerful.

Software Development

From automation of repetitive tasks to building web applications which solve institutional problems. There's something really enjoyable about the positive feedback loop which comes from writing code.

Higher Education and Learning

As someone who considers themselves a lifelong learner, one of the best parts of my work is watching students (and colleagues) have that A-HA! moment when they have finally understood a difficult concept. Leading others to have those moments is very rewarding.
