Thanks for visiting my website. I’m a GIS Specialist, and the “special” part is history. I love DC history and I’m fascinated with maps and the sense of place. I convert historical resources into data with an eye toward visualizing that data by mapping it. That makes the details of our history more accessible and readily understood. History never looked so good!

Applying GIS to historical studies is still a fairly new thing, and I think that is a big part of what attracts me to it. There is so much to do and it all helps us to better understand the past. See what I’ve done and what I’m up to now at the Projects page. My ideas on this work and where it can go are on the Vision page.
