I've been a mapping enthusiast since childhood and an IT professional for over 20 years. I'm currently a web developer for the US Government and work on projects covering everything from custom content management systems to web mapping applications and GIS data integration. I also provide consulting services to local and international companies mostly in the realm of internet application development and custom mapping solutions.
While I'm new to the GIS world, having only worked on a handful of projects (most of which are web-mapping related), I've been an IT professional for over 20 years and have worked at every level. I've worked as a network engineer, system administrator, web developer, and hardware/software technician. This breadth of experience plus the knowledge I've already gained through consulting and studying for my ICT/GIS masters at the University of Denver make me a great candidate to take GISCO to the next level.
I'm also a career USAF Reservist and will pass my 20 year service mark in April. I've managed and mentored groups of over 20 airman in all aspects of their career and have extensive experience in bringing geographically separated groups together. This experience has helped me learn to utilize strengths of individuals to help realize the goals of the entire team.
