I was a PhD Candidate in Geography at the University of Connecticut. I used to do a lot of work in spatial analysis with GIS as a student and part time employee at the Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC) at UConn. I used to see quite a few historic maps on a daily basis there (yes, railroad maps too!).
Then I was a Planetarium Supervisor at Mystic Seaport where I used to play with an A3-P Spitz star projector, create new programs, and find sources of funding for innovative approaches to STEM education.
Now I work at Randstad/Google Maps as a Geovisual Data Specialist (hooray maps!)
My interests outside of work include Model Railroading, Fly Fishing, Astronomy and Beer. For more information about me, see the following link:
