I am an Army veteran (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) who decided to become a software engineer specializing in GIS basically because I love maps. In my free time I enjoy fly fishing and kayaking in the Adirondack mountains, restoring old bamboo fly rods, fly tying, woodworking, and converting good craft beer to water. :-)
