|Occupation||Surveying / Mapping / Engineering / GIS|
|Location||Washington, DC, United States|
|Introduction||Originally from Massachusetts, I grew up in Germany during ten years of the Cold War.|
Since then, I call Pennsylvania home, by way of El Paso, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington.
I began in the Surveying field right out of high school, and while getting my B.Sc at Penn State, pursued a wide variety of academic interests, from surveying and photogrammetry to physics and civil engineering to computer science, and began to get involved in the still-fledgling fields of GIS and Remote Sensing, including a student GIS project for the City of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Over the past 20 years I have fused all of these disciplines, having obtained my license as a Professional Land Surveyor, followed by my Professional Engineer license, with my longstanding interest in computer science, to develop and deliver a wide variety of applications geared toward support of surveying, CAD, GIS, engineering and environmental science.
I recently joined the US Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Information, where I am national program manager for EPA's Facility Registry System.
