Something about designing a world from scratch has always driven me to practice and hone my mapping abilities.

I've been making maps my entire life, even when I was a child. It has always been a passion of mine, and I took mapping classes in college involving Geography, Geographic Information Systems and Mapping History. I've designed and utilized maps in both professional settings such as a university research symposium and capstone project, as well as for my own creativity in writing and mapping community activities.
