Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an essential tool for spatially displaying, analyzing, and storing data from Earth’s surface; the printing press of the environmental industry. Throughout and since my college career, I have developed my GIS skills and have applied it to different sectors and industries. I hope to focus my GIS skills on initiatives aiming to improve the built environment. In hindsight, ripping pages out of my parents’ Atlas in the 90’s should have been fostered, not punished.

Below are a few samples of my work or click here to see my full GIS portfolio.


Determining potential tree planting sites in Austin, Texas located on a core transit corridor and within 2 kilometers of a waterway
Juxtaposing income and diploma distribution within Central Texas counties
Visualizing potential conservation areas in Michigan


Juxtaposing populated jurisdictions with county fire warning areas in Portland, Oregon


Statistically significant (using GI*) sidewalk quality scores in New York census tracts
Visualizing the indirect relationship between walkability and obesity levels in statistically significant New York City census tracts. Red tracts indicate high levels of obesity and low sidewalk quality scores, while green tracts indicate low levels of obesity and high sidewalk quality scores.
