With two decades of diverse geospatial experience, my leadership in program management and project management delivers consistent and responsive results for our clients. My mentorship of our aerial mapping project managers and technical staff maintains their sharpness in problem solving, cost reduction, and constant improvement through training. I value long-term client relationships and love working on projects with multi-disciplinary teams.

I put much of my energy into organizing state aerial imagery and lidar programs around the nation as well as leading Ayres' GIS program, having consulted worldwide on GIS department best practices. I've walked in the shoes of public sector land information and GIS officials and have experience establishing and managing a GIS department. I received Esri's Special Achievement in GIS award.

I believe in working side-by-side with my clients and my community; I am a Wisconsin Land Information Association past president, chairman of the Wisconsin Land Information Council, director of the Wisconsin Land Information Foundation, and a board member of the Esri Wisconsin User Group.

Here are some of my areas of expertise:

  • Client liaison
  • GIS best practices and workflows
  • Project design
  • Project cost reduction
Certifications
  • Certified Geographic Information Systems Professional
  • Certified ArcGIS Desktop Professional
Education
  • BS, Physical Geography/Cartography, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point
