-Did several GIS research projects on top of a geology senior thesis in undergrad -Got super excited when I found out about a new GIS in DC grad certificate that worked with my full time work schedule -I keep asking my boss for GIS projects to do at work -There's some kind of mysterious and awesome thrill I get out of working in GIS, particularly when I figure out some clever series of operations and it actually works. -I'd love to learn GRASS, and have started trying to teach it to myself. -Being able to share this enthusiasm with other people in the DC area would be great!
