Career Experience

Cushman & Wakefield, Remote. February 2019 – Current.

GIS Engineer:

Helping clients find their optimal workplace through commercial real estate analytics. This means researching economic and population statistics to locate ideal offices to lease.

Showing proximity of FEMA floodplains to office building locations to assess risks and consider flood insurance coverage options.

Studying facility costs, population movements, job growth, and access to transportation and amenities so a client can make an informed decision for the best office location.

Creating clickable 3D buildings using ArcGIS Pro and SketchUp. Through Python coding, I generate floors that show a variety of statistics based on market demands.

As part of the GIS team and R&D sector of Cushman & Wakefield, I look for new technologies and valuable analytics to include in commercial real estate decision-making.

Felsburg Holt & Ullevig, Centennial, CO. June 2013 – February 2019.

GIS Analyst 2:

Creating maps to show street design, visual analyses, biological resource impacts, and mitigation measures for road, bridge, and pedestrian path projects.

Performing traffic and accident analyses to determine areas for road improvements.

Managing GIS projects: Collecting data, building geodatabases, conducting research, maintaining a budget, producing maps for reports and proposals, and presenting findings.

Using Trimble GPS units to identify wetlands, vegetation, and animal habitats.

Mapping FEMA floodplains and soils to determine design and viability of road construction.

Performing 3D analysis of landscape architecture, Lidar contours, and floodplains.

Creating shapefiles and digital drawings from georeferenced maps.

Creating high-resolution aerials for use in ArcMap, Microstation, AutoCAD, and Infraworks.

Producing instruction manuals on GIS standards and tasks.

Converting between shapefile, dgn, and dwg file formats, and using shift and scale factors in survey control diagrams to translate between ground survey and GIS coordinate systems.

Jeppesen (Department of Defense contract), Englewood, CO. April 2012 – April 2013.

Geospatial Analyst:

Extracted power utility data from aerial and satellite imagery for collection by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

Recorded the location, height, and condition of transmission lines, power plant components, hydroelectric dams, wind farms, and communication towers.

Taught new employees geoprocessing tools and the types of energy sources to identify.

QCing co-workers mapped areas and instructing them on any changes needed.

Microsoft Bing Maps, Boulder, CO. August 2011 – April 2012. Quality Control Specialist for the Global Ortho Project:

Held title Block Reviewer: evaluating co-workers mapped areas and determining if they meet high standards for quality and shipment.

Produced 3D aerial imagery and exported maps to DigitalGlobe.

Used aerial triangulation to identify ground control points and tie-points.

Performed seamline and DEM edits and used Photoshop to enhance image quality.

Assessed environmental factors (cloud cover, flooding, and snowpack).


Software: Esri Suite (ArcGIS Desktop and Pro, ArcSDE, ArcGIS Server, and ArcGIS Online), Python, SQL, ModelBuilder, Trimble GPS, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Microstation, Sketchup, Infraworks, Projectwise, Jira, Confluence, RemoteView, UltraMap AT, ENVI, Photoshop, Google Earth, and Microsoft Office Suite.

Cartography and GIS: Creating professional maps for publication, collecting data with Trimble GPS, using Spatial and 3D Analyst, creating and editing geodatabases, shapefiles, and attribute fields, georeferencing data, and mastering Editor and ArcToolbox functions in ArcMap. Examples:

oUsing the Extract toolset to clip surveyed wetlands to a limits of construction area and determining resource impacts.

oUsing the Feature to 3D by Attribute tool to convert contours from 2D to 3D based on their height. Then overlaying the file with proposed roadway design in CADD to detect elevation, water flow direction, and landscape differences.

oCreating 3D Buildings with heights derived from DEM and DSM models.

Database management: Creating geodatabases for raster and vector data storage; using Microsoft Access, SQL, and the Definition Query function in ArcMap to select specific attributes and define relationships between tables.

Remote sensing: Using the ENVI software to color-classify structures and parcels to understand land use, vegetation cover, and elevation differences.
