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 has been working with county governments. 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 for Camp Swatara, and creating the Cumberland County Subdivision & Land Development Plans Map.

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