I grew up as an atlas kid. I would study maps for fun. It took me 2.5 years into my undergrad to find GIS. I didn't know the science existed. I switched majors and graduated in 2009 from Salisbury University. I worked for 4 years at Citygate GIS (Annapolis, MD) before I returned to college at the University of Maryland. The Masters program at UMD in GIS was a perfect fit. I am exposed to many GIS technologies that I was not able to work with at my previous employment. I am eager to learn any and all GIS related technologies and methods.
My name is Patrick O'Brien and I am currently a student at the University of Maryland in the GIS Masters program with a projected graduation data of May 2015. I graduated from Salisbury University with a BS in Geography in 2009. 4 yrs at Citygate GIS
