headshot_alphaWelcome! I’m a geographer for a government agency in New Orleans, La. I have a background in CAD, GIS, Web design/ development, programming, data visualization and recently developing unmanned aerial systems (sUAS). I am very interested in the geography and geology of southeast Louisiana. My work and studies have me evolved with navigation on our inland waterways, wetland loss, coastal erosion/ restoration, and the effects of those things on the people who live here.

I have lived in the New Orleans area for most of my life and have literally watched the land disappear over the years.  It’s scary when an area a few miles from your house was once land and now it’s completely submerged in water.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
