Hello ~

I am a GIS specialist/developer, and often cartographer, who loves working with historical maps and open source software. My main tools are QGIS, Python, PostGIS, and Django. This site is a continual work-in-progress, but I work on a lot of fun projects so I try to share about them here.

In summer of 2022 I completed MS Geography and MLIS degrees at Louisiana State University. My thesis, "Creating a Public Space for Georeferencing Sanborn Maps: A Louisiana Case Study" explored a crowdsourcing approach for content in the Library of Congress Sanborn maps collection. You can read a bit more about it in the documentation or see the outcome on the project site: oldinsurancemaps.net.

I also have a geospatial consulting business, Legion GIS, through which I have worked extensively with the open source project Arches.

You can find my almost-up-to-date CV here.

Thanks for looking, and feel free to get in touch: .
