I run a department with aeronautical and maritime products, facilities, 3D, and geodata (utility, imagery, land parcels) technical centers, and enterprise-level mapping implementations.
I also have Ocean & Maritime Ports business leadership duties, with special interest in hydrographic mapping technologies. I am keen to see implementations of ArcGIS platform include maritime patterns such as disconnected editing, real-time triggers and alerts, automated analysis, and water column visualization.
I came to Esri after over 24 years in the NOAA Corps and a little time as a marine pile driving inspector. I graduated from Whitman College and Columbia University in the 3-2 Engineering program, studying Math/Physics and Civil Engineering, respectively. Although I passed my EIT, I never practiced professional engineering, as I was having too much fun driving ships and mapping the ocean in Alaska! I also completed a 3-week Harvard Kennedy School of Government program for Senior Managers and elected officials.
