Building new kinds of maps for social good


My Story

I'm passionate about solutions at the intersection of product management, geospatial technology, social connection and environmental justice. I've spent 15 years in this space as an Urban Planner/Designer both in private and public practice, Geospatial Technologist and Information Manager in the AEC industry, and Product Manager of geodata in real-world mobile games such as Pokémon GO.
