I guess i just jumped right in without really saying hi!
I guess I did that too! I subscribed last fall, but didn't participate actively until last month or so. I guess not a lot of person know about me.
I'm live in Montreal, Quebec and I've been working for 2½ years for a medium size publisher specialized in reference book (QA International). If you ever saw some kind of visual dictionnary, QA published the first one almost 25 years ago (that's us: http://visual.merriam-webster.com/ (MW is one of our partner) I don't particularly like the maps in the "Earth" section, but it wasn't me ).
I have a B.A and M.A in Medieval History and a one year undergraduate certificate in GIS. I have experience mainly in the publishing business: atlases and school book.
Unfortunately, QA is going to close is Cartography Department next month and since I am the Cartography Dept., it means I'm looking for a new job (don't worry, it's not so bad). Being alone, I can't produce fast enough to follow the competition so... (I work fast, but I'm not a mapping machine )
Well, enough about me! I have to finish this Atlas
