I am happy to finally introduce myself on CartoTalk, as I have followed the site for a couple years already! I am hoping that active participation on CartoTalk will help me as I try to keep up with the mapping world and that I can be of help to others when the opportunity calls.
I am interested in Cartography and geographic analysis across the board. As a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Cartography program and as a National Geographic intern, I have acquired a wealth of cartographic knowledge from a great group of mentors. Most of my current work focuses on GIS and web-mapping in my role as GIS Analyst for St. Charles County, Missouri, near St. Louis. However, I keep my more artistic mapping skills sharp through a mix of volunteer and freelance projects. A good example of this is the map that I drafted for the NACIS Map Off! competition last fall in Portland.
I keep a WordPress site to display my work, which you can see here: http://colterrificmaps.wordpress.com/
Looking forward to talking with you all more somewhere down the road!
