Summary

Currently a student at New Mexico State University, seeking knowledge and opportunities in the GIS, remote sensing, Soil Science and environmental industries.

My experience is primarily focused on public sector work and have Interned with the USDA NRCS and currently with the NGA.  I pride myself on my ability to work in a collaborative environment, and enjoy creative problem solving and developing solutions to complex or difficult analysis problems. I believe that analysis is equal parts technical proficiency and scientific method, and pride myself on a creative, scientifically guided approach to problem solving.

At the moment I'm working on expanding my working knowledge of the institutional implementation of GIS.

I enjoy taking part in my professional community, please feel free to contact me about anything!
