Greetings and welcome to my cartographic portfolio.
Collected here are maps I have created while studying at the Centre of Geographic Sciences and examples of work projects I've been a part of since graduation. I invite you to look around.
From a young age, maps have been a source of intrigue and fascination for me - I grew up tacking the spectacular thematic maps often accompanying volumes of National Geographic to my wall. It was chiefly their cartographic artistry, along with a childhood of orienteering, that compelled me to study the subject myself.
Designing maps that capture attention and engross the user by their aesthetic is a characteristic that interests and motivates me. I have a profound respect for the integrity of data and believe that the intended audience of any geospatial material, no matter the medium, will receive the most information from a well crafted, artistically appealing map.
I had the fortune this past year to work at The Atlas of Canada where I was very inspired by its long legacy of cartographic excellence.
Though the direction of map making seems to be changing in a digital ecosystem of fast-paced online endeavours, I promote the value of time devoted to aesthetics in maps and the positive outcomes it generates.
I am interested in working with an engaging team of GIS professionals; continuing to learn newer and more effective ways to represent geospatial data and producing high quality cartographic products.
