My objective is to obtain a position as a Remote Sensing Specialist, GIS Analyst/Specialist position to use and improve my skills in remote sensing, photogrammetry, UAV technology, GIS, and GIS web development.


GIS Analyst II 02/2016-07/2016

Bureau of Indian Affairs Lakewood, CO

•Used ArcGIS 10.4 to digitize tribal land parcels that contain metes and bounds legal land descriptions. Land parcels were digitized in conjunction to Bureau of Land Management's Public Land Survey System.

•Used ArcGIS 10.4 Align to Shape tool to digitize tribal land parcels boundaries.

•Created QA/QC procedures to read metes and bounds legal descriptions and determine if descriptions are able to be mapped or not mapped. Change legal description format.

•Created land parcel and tract maps with ArcGIS 10.4 Data Driven Pages, Model Builder, and Python scripting. Modify Model Builder and Python scripts to automate map process.

Geospatial Analyst 05/2015-01/2016

IHS Inc Lakewood, CO

• Used ArcGIS COGO tool to draw metes and bounds of tribal land parcel boundaries across the United States.

•Developed strong familiarity to BLM PLSS Land Survey System.

•Digitized and attribute BLM PLSS Land Survey System to BLM data standards.

•Perform pre-QA/QC checklist to ensure PLSS attributes are consistent with processing codes.

•Communicated and worked closely with staff to ensure best quality of PLSS and Indian Land parcels.

Geographer 03/2014-01/2015

Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement Denver, CO

•Developed leadership skills. Trained interns how to design a mine site in ArcGIS 10.3, how to extract a DEM and orthorectify satellite imagery in ERDAS Imagine 2013, how to construct metadata of imagery and geospatial data. Assigned interns working tasks and avoided duplication to maximize efficiency.

•Use ERDAS Imagine 2013 LPS Suite to extract a Digital Elevation Model and orthorectify satellite imagery of a several mine complexes in Washington, New Mexico, and Arizona.

•Develop surface mine maps. Performed map feature and imagery QA/QC to resolve display errors.

•Developed metadata for imagery of mine complexes throughout the Western Region. Metadata includes proper file naming convention, satellite sensor, image type, pixel size, vertical and horizontal reference, RMSE of orthorectified imagery.

•Identified system and project requirements to implement a new ArcGIS Image Server. Migrated several terabytes of satellite imagery from local server to a new remote server.

•Developed demonstration videos for an online course called GALENA Slope Stability funded by OSMRE.

•Provide customer service to people in and outside the OSMRE that consists of special projects, and requests.

GIS Specialist 10/2013-03/2014 State of Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining, and Safety Denver, CO

•Investigated and located abandoned mine features in Boulder and Gilpin counties.

•QA/QC abandoned mine features locations by using a Trimble GPS unit, USGS topographic maps, and hand drawn maps.

•Determined if mine features need maintenance, and determine the severity of the mine features.

•Used ArcGIS 10.0 to digitize gravel pit mines of the South Platte River Basin impacted by the September flooding in Colorado.

OSM/AmeriCorps GIS and Remote Sensing Intern 11/2011 –09/2013 Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement Denver, CO

•Used ERDAS IMAGINE 2013 and performed change detection between historical and current DEMs and identified abandoned mine land areas of southwest Virginia.

•Created maps of the Navajo and McKinley coal mine complexes in New Mexico, and the Black Mesa/Kayenta coal mine complexes in Arizona. The maps included; recent orthorectified satellite imagery, permit boundary, temporary ponds with labels, excess spoil piles, jurisdiction site areas and mine ownership data.

•Mosaicked Rapid Response Orthophotos of several mine sites with ERDAS IMAGINE 2013.

•Downloaded and organized NGA’s WARP satellite imagery. Used ArcGIS to determine the amount of coverage of each satellite scan that overlaid the requested satellite imagery graticules.

•QA/QC tester for an ArcSDE project served over ArcServer called GeoMine. (

•Wrote a comparison report on GeoMine Pilot Project Data Viewer and compared it to publicly available state sites.

•Created Groundwater and Surface Water maps for hydrologic impact assessment of the Centralia Mine complex, WA with georeferenced scanned maps. Digitized and edited features of the geo-referenced maps while maintaining geographic coordinate system accuracy using the editor tool in the ArcGIS software.

•Conducted CAD file revisions for mine site maps by using AutoDesk’s AutoCAD Map 3D 2011 to create topology between identical features, properly converted .DWG file into ArcGIS .SHP format while maintaining data accuracy of the data by using the correct geographic coordinate system.

•Imported Microsoft Excel spreadsheet data and format to a table in Microsoft Access. Appended and updated imported data tables to meet new data standards.

•Produced and edited an instructional video for the GeoMine Pilot Project web application using Camtasia software.

Project Lead and Cartographic Specialist 01/2011 - 06/2011

U. Washington, WA Geographic Information Council, City of Richland, Dept. of Ecology

•Developed project contract and project implementation goals in order to complete a successful product

•Used ArcGIS to create 39 final county map products that identified residential land use parcels which are unprotected by state, local and tribal fire districts.

•Created and maintained geodatabases.

DPRK Volunteer Digitizer 05/2013-05/2014


•Use ArcGIS to digitize features on topographic sheets of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

•Use topologies to correct digitizing errors and establish the correct relationship shared between features.

ITOS Niger GeoCoding Volunteer


•Identify coordinates of shapefile points by doing a local name search via internet map search engine.

•QA/QC shapefile points by identifying 1st and 2nd division regions.
