I am a cartographer and developer interested in telling the stories of communities through maps and technology. I have helped local governments and non-profits tell their stories through maps for print, interactive web maps, and websites.

Most of my professional experience is working with county governments in GIS, Planning, and Recreation departments. I have also completed freelance projects for non-profits and web development companies.

Some projects I'm especially proud of are redesigning the hiking trails map (pdf) for Camp Swatara, developing my wife's website, and creating the Cumberland County Residential Recycling & Disposal Map.

If you're interested in collaborating on a project, or have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at pnmcartography[at]gmail.com
