Teaching at FRCC – I have served on the GIS Steering Committee for several years. FRCC/Boulder County Campus has garnered several awards, including best academic program at any Colorado Community College in 2012 and a SAG Award from Esri in 2014. My focus has been with GPS Field Data Collection, which is taught in the summer as a hands on, project focused course.
Developing UAV platforms for Geospatial use – I am also with Juniper Unmanned Aerial Systems where I am responsible for developing geospatial uses for UAV. My title is Flight Operations Manager and I work to integrate UAV into full compliance with FAA regulations. My team is working to confirm best practices based for various geospatial applications by matching platforms to sensors and mission plans.
My vision for GISCO is to find a way to expose more high school and college students to the benefits of acquiring a GIS skill set, no matter what your academic pursuits might be.
I have been an active member of past GISCO boards, while still employed by Esri. I also used my GISCO board position as a platform for the formation of WyGEO, which functions like GISCO in the state of Wyoming.
I have administered the San Luis Valley GIS/GPS Authority (SLV GIS) for the past 20 years. During this time, I have overseen the creation of seamless GIS spatial data over six counties in south-central Colorado. During the last 4 years, SL V GIS has been in a public/private partnership with Integrated Land Services (ILS) of which I am President and part-owner. I was a member of the Board of the Rio Grande Headwaters Land Trust from 2005 to 2008, serving as Chair during my last year on the Board. I served as Alamosa County Emergency Manager (parttime) from 2008-2013 and was Chair of the San Luis Valley All-Hazards Committee. During my service as Emergency Manager I was a member of the Grant Review Committee for the Governor's Office of Homeland Security. I have been a member of Alamosa County's Planning Commission since 2008. Presently I am a Founding Board member of Society Hall here in the City of Alamosa. Society Hall is a 501c3 organization that provides a venue for cultural events, primarily music.
In terms of education, I earned a PhD in Physical Geography from Oxford University, a MSc and BS in Geology from Old Dominion University and a BA in French from Randolph Macon College.
I feel that my experience with a variety of organizations and purposes, as well as my education, has provided me with a rich tapestry of knowledge and experience that will serve GIS Colorado in a beneficial and productive manner. I believe my current service to the Board of GIS Colorado has resulted in a positive impact with not only the members of GIS Colorado, but with other organizations and individuals associated with the geospatial industry. Providing GIS services to a large area of rural Colorado (nearly 10% of the State) as a self-sustaining entity has been a challenge and continues to be a challenge. Being elected to the Board of GIS Colorado is a similar challenge, and a challenge that I openly seek. Because of these challenges, my education and my experience with geospatial data, I ask that the voting members of GIS Colorado elect me to another term on the Board of GIS Colorado.
