Geographic Information Systems

If a picture is worth a thousand words then a map must be worth millions. 
Maps are incredible works of art and some of the most powerful form of communication.
​Geographic Information Science is how I go about exploring spatial
interactions, designing and communicating them. 


I am interested in applying GIS to develop multi-modal transportation systems
within communities to make our networks sustainable and robust. I am passionate in my work with walkability, infrastructure, and transit systems.
