CTO, Esri R&D DC
I joined Esri in 2012 as the CTO from GeoIQ. We built GeoCommons and are integrating the web capabilities, standards, analytics, and open data into the ArcGIS Platform.
I wrote "Introduction to Neogeography" for O'Reilly in 2006, highlighting the rise in ability for anyone to make personal maps telling stories of their lives, investigate location history and answer complex questions.
In 2010 I co-founded CrisisCommons, a global network of volunteer technologists to rapidly assist in a crisis through data creation, tool development and technology assistance. I am a chart member of the OSGeo Foundation, a member of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and the OpenStreetMap foundation.
In may 'spare' time I brew beer, play trombone, and practice 14th century german longsword.
