People know me as an original “data wrangler,” one who is passionate about the art and science of data quality, data governance, and data architecture - all in support of fact-based decision making.
Spatial data is a particular area of interest. Maps caught my attention way back in seventh grade thanks to a great teacher. I’ve been hooked ever since.
Data has a story to tell. It’s our job as database professionals to expose its secrets, to reveal its insights, and then put them to work advancing the goals of the organization. Often maps reveal hidden insights. This is why, for me, maps and databases go hand in hand, and why I love to unite the two.
I’m a fan of “institutional memories.” Every successful organization needs one. This site serves as my own institutional memory — of my projects, ideas, methods, and useful stuff gathered while working with maps and databases.
