I think it's helpful to offer some background on myself in order to provide context for my edits, establish authority on certain topics, and acknowledge potential biases.

Places[edit]

I've lived in Ohio most of my life, in Canton and then Cincinnati. I currently live in Toronto, Canada.

Expertise[edit]

Formal[edit]

I'm currently finishing up a PhD in urban planning at the University of Toronto, with a focus on GIS and quantitative methods in transport geography. Most of my work deals with non-automotive forms of transport such as bicycles[1] and public transit[2][3]. I've also published in cartography[4] and worked professionally in that area.

I have a master's degree in geography (quantitative, human geography) from the University of Cincinnati, and my bachelor's is in urban planning, from the same university but a more design-oriented college (DAAP). During my undergrad I worked briefly at the Bureau of Transportation Statistics at the USDOT in DC.

Informal and Hobbies[edit]

I've been sewing for about a decade now, and contribute sometimes to pages on sewing and pattern-making.

Other Projects[edit]

I contribute regularly to OpenStreetMap under the same username.

My partner works in medical illustration / taxidermy / anatomy, and I sometimes upload some of his work to Wikimedia Commons.
