Are you currently developing with Esri technology?

I currently have ESRI ArcGIS 8.2 and ArcGIS 9.3 on two machines. I have found it difficult to find continuous opportunities for my GIS skills.

What development langauge(s) are you using?

I have training in,, and Python. I am not using these skills currently, but would like to.

What geo spatial technologies are you most interested in?

I am most interested in the Business Intelligence field and merging BI with GIS to fully explore the geographic dimension of business data. I recently completed a series of classes for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Business Intelligence Development suite. Unfortunately, few companies are seeing the connection between my GIS experience and skills and BI. I am essentially unemployed and looking for contract or FTE work. I'd like to be on the forefront of change for once. Beyond BI, I am interested in remote sensing, 3D mapping and visualizations, and network analysis for pipeline and electrical grids.


I am a certified GIS professional with 4 years of experience with thematic mapping, geospatial analysis, Siting studies, and geospatial predictive models. I am also a certified project manager with a total of 22 years in IT and Geo-Tech industries.
