I am a self-taught full-stack GIS Developer
meaning I work with analyzing and communicating spatial datasets -
often with a focus on city-design, climate change, and the growing
socio-economic divide. The goal is help organizations communicate. And
doing so by translating complex research narratives into
easy-to-digest maps and apps in order to reach wide audiences.
I am the founder of TucsonPathways.org
- a bicycle advocacy organization, centered on data-analytics of city
infrastructure. The Pathways web-app calculates and visualizes
alternative bike-commutes optimized for safer, quieter, more scenic
rides. The goal is to promote commuting for potential-riders who feel
intimidated to ride on traditional bike-lanes alongside high-stress
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-educated in numerous
programming languages and technical softwares - ArcGIS, QGIS, Spatial
Node, git version control, VSCode, Vue.js, Mapbox-GL.js,
Mapbox-Studio, Leaflet, Drone Mapping, Graphhopper, Netlify, Turf.js,
Microsoft Office Suite, some Python, some Firebase, some D3.js, along
with several others smaller supplementary programs.
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
Through years past I've worked as a
bike mechanic, warehouse laborer, bartender, hydrological technican,
waste collector, research analyst, community-farm laborer,
freelance movie critic, and currently volunteer weekends as a medical scribe for Tucson's largest Covid-19 vaccination site. I love bike-toured, competitive ultimate frisbee, and volunteered as youth rock-climbing instructor.
