With nearly ten years experience in GIS, natural resource management, and environmental sciences, I have worked across the US and abroad performing research, planning, and consulting for state, national, and business entities. During that time, I also delivered technical training for small to mid size classrooms in GIS and related technologies. For the past five years, I have maintained a busy freelance cartography and design practice. I'm very technically minded but know how to make complex topics accessible and I'm interested in developing some more teaching experience while I grow my consulting practice and prepare for some more graduate school in geography.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I held an Adobe Certified Expert credential with CS4. Though I have not renewed it, I have been using InDesign professionally since 2006 in both salaried and freelance positions. In my last full time position, I trained four interns in total in the use of InDesign and related software in the Creative Suite (CS5 - 6).
