I am a self-taught GIS Developer
using my knowledge of web-development, geospatial-analysis, and
design to visualize maps in cool meaningful ways. Those visuals
become narratives, and those narratives (hopefully in a small
way) empower positive change.
I am the founder of TucsonPathways.org
- a bicycle advocacy organization, centered on data-analytics of
city infrastructure. Our Pathways web-app calculates and
visualizes alternative bike-commutes optimized for safer,
quieter, more scenic rides. Our goal is to promote commuting for
potential-riders who feel intimidated to ride on traditional
bike-lanes alongside high-stress vehicle traffic.
I graduated with distinction
in Applied Mathematics & Environmental Hydrology from the
University of Arizona in the Spring of 2013, working odd-jobs
and internships throughout to pay my way through college.
I am a self-learner in a wide
array of technical softwares - ArcGIS, QGIS, Spatial Analysis
git, VSCode, Mapbox-GL, Leaflet, Node, Aerial Drone Mapping,
Graphhopper, SQL, Python, Vue.js, D3.js, Database Management,
Microsoft Office Suite, along with several others supplementary
I am a published technical writer with the United States Geological Survey for my work in using
GIS methods to improve estimates of agricultural water-use. I
have been formally acknowledged in a publication by the World
Resources Institute for my GIS contributions to the Forest
Conservation Natural Infrastructure Program.
Through years past I've worked
as a bike mechanic, warehouse laborer, bartender, GIS analyst,
hydrological technican, waste collector, research analyst,
community-farm laborer, and freelance movie critic. I've
bike-toured across the country, competed in the Ultimate Frisbee
College National Championships, and volunteered as youth
