I have a myriad of interests but my main focus is on the intersection between GIS, archaeology, and digital communication. The questions I ask myself are as follows: How can GIS be used to convey information in an attainable, sustainable, and accessible way? How can we tell stories of the past through spatial analysis with relevance to a continuously changing world? How can we take data and make it accessible, be it archaeology or intelligence work?
I have a passion for connecting to each individual I work with and am a strong believer in a positive and supportive work environment. My recent GIS work related to my former position at GW, highlights the intersecting aspects of anthropology, visual art, data collection, and data visualization with an ArcGIS Experience page combining maps, surveys, and national mourning. You can visit www.inamericaflags.org to see the webpage I created. This is a 3-week long physical and digital art installation on the National Mall, right next to the Washington Monument. The concept was created by artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg.
I enjoy a good Netflix binge, but when not on the couch I am walking neighborhood dogs and finding food gems in the District.
