I am passionate about data. I've worked with complex spatial data extensively, on projects ranging from threatened species habitat change to real estate assessment analyses. I've also contributed to OpenStreetMap, adding updates I observe on my travels, as well as writing scripts to aid in importing data such as New Jersey's statewide land use data. My passion and enthusiasm has helped when I've trained others or led courses, as I try to make the concepts and theories behind spatial data and software development understandable to the lay person or those new to the field. I excel at providing direction to projects and people that is the right mix of efficiency and emotional intelligence.
