About Me
My mission is to promote the development of Spatial Information Management Systems for any individual or organization regardless of their resources.

The idea to start consulting developed while I assisted the American Red Cross Mile High Chapter in creating a Geographic Information System in order to empower its volunteers, decrease chapter response time in an emergency and increase the chapter's efficiency. The foundation of my ideas originates from studying Spatial Information Management Systems at Colorado State University.


I was featured in the May 2010 International Association of Emergency Managers Bulletin with an article titled Developing a Geographic Information System on the Cheap; as well as multiple articles written for The Flume (the Park County Republican and Fairplay Flume newspaper) that have featured maps created using multiple programs including Depiction, MapWindow and the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).
