Hello! I was born in Reading, PA but I have grown up and lived most of my life in Kentucky. I spent 4 years in the Navy where I got to see some fantastic places around the world as well as meeting my beautiful wife! After the Navy, I moved to Lexington where I attended UK and graduated in 2020 with a BA in Geography with a minor in Mapping and GIS. I love maps and anything related to them! I currently work in the ITS Geospatial Office here at UK. Much of what I do at work involves creating various mapping products for UK Departments, maintaining the UK Campus Map, as well as overseeing the ESRI License Agreement for the university. Some examples of my work at UK include the Alumni Association's Alumni Plaza Paver Locator Map, as well as the Parking Maps for UK Transportation.
I am pursuing the Masters in Digital Mapping so I can further expand my GIS knowledge as well as pick up some programming skills along the way!
