This is my professional website. Currently under construction, I plan to post articles, papers, presentations and other materials about Cartography. I also plan to show samples of maps and geographic illustrations.

If you have need of mapmaking services, please contact me at my day job as Chief Cartographer at International Mapping in Ellicott City, Maryland.


I also operate a small side venture in mountain and wilderness recreation maps. I recently completed the Moosilauke Mountain Trail Map at left.
