Originally from North Carolina, I am a GIS Specialist with Arapahoe County Government, specializing in Planning, Open Space, Assessor, and Public Works applications. Prior to working for Arapahoe County, I worked in aerial mapping and for the city of Hendersonville, N.C. I joined the Air Force two years after High School. After getting out of the military, I completed my A.S. from Aims Community College in Greeley, CO. I received my B.A. in Geography from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, CO. Later I earned my M.A. in Geography from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR. My interests include both human and physical geography, primarily landform evolution, soils, and human adaptation to their environment.
