Hello World,
I'm John!

John at 2015 AAG conference with Rebecca Rice and Michael Goodchild

As a highly skilled geospatial software engineer, I have a wealth of experience blending GIS domain knowledge with full-stack development to create stunning and efficient mapping applications. My academic background includes a bachelor's degree in Geography from UCSB, where I had the privilege of studying under renowned thought leaders Michael Goodchild and Waldo Tobler. I further honed my skills with an M.S. in Geoinformatics and Geospatial Intelligence at George Mason University. After graduation, I played a pivotal role in launching one of the world's most viewed geospatial web applications, ArcGIS Dashboards, as a product engineer at Esri.

Currently, I am the lead geospatial developer for the EASIER Data Initiative, a UMD project funded by the Filecoin Foundation For the Decentralied Web. I am responsible for developing infrastructure that enables efficient, accessible, and sustainable onloading, analysis, and extraction of large geospatial datasets into blockchain-managed decentralized storage systems such as Filecoin and IPFS.
