Professionally I have worked in hydrologic research and municipal government. My work has focused on scientific research related to prairie and forest hydrology, along with regional community planning related to transportation and infrastructure.
I am passionate about geographic thought. This fuels and connects my other interests of photography, broadcasting, geomatics, scientific inquiry, and of course, hockey.
My professional skills and samples of my work are highlighted below.
