I'm an ecologist and natural resources scientist who never leaves the office, a GIS analyst who cares deeply about the why and how, and a technologist who likes to tinker and build.
I'm currently a Senior Cartographer/Analyst for The Nature Conservancy's North American Region. Previously, I spent five years as a GIS Manager for the Arizona Nature Conservancy's conservation science program, where I have conducted spatial analysis for conservation planning efforts, programmed web applications, and managed GIS resources for 15 staff.
From 2005-2007, I wrote a set of Python-based ArcGIS tools for designing wildlife corridors, and used the tools to design corridors throughout Arizona. For my MS thesis, I modeled the potential distributions of birds in the montane cloud forests surrounding Monteverde, Costa Rica.
I'm motivated by challenging problems and a desire to leave the world a little better than I found it. If you'd like to work with me, feel free to send me a message.
