Welcome to my website where you will find all things maps, geography, GIS and random musings. While you're here, check this:
subreddit dedicated to maps not including Iceland. Spoiler alert: There is a different subreddit for maps without New Zealand.
Hello, world! I grew up on Alaska’s southcentral coast in the small fishing town of Cordova. Growing up I would spend the summers with my family on our commercial pink salmon seine boat. I attended college at the University of Alaska Fairbanks where I received a B.A. in Earth Science as well as a Spanish minor. After graduating I continued seining in the summers and started to travel in the winters. I enjoyed seeing the sights in South America and working on my Spanish skills.
I wanted to pursue my passion for Geographic Information Systems and realized quite quickly that I would need more than my B.A. degree to get there, so I completed a GIS master certificate program at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. I created this website to showcase some of my work, hope you enjoy!
