I am an artist and a cartographer who mixes both practices to express and understand landscapes. I live in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and work for Esri, where I write and edit lessons for the Learn ArcGIS site.

I studied fine art at Queen's University in Kington, Ontario, and cartography and GIS at the Center of Geographic Sciences (COGS) in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia.
