What I Do

I help the Products and Data team operate efficiently, building processes to get done what we need to do so there is time to work on what we want to do. As a developer, I manage the imagery archive, oversee the creation of imagery mosaics, and help run production for the DEM products. I collaborate closely with the User Services team to align development work with user needs and larger PGC goals for making an impact on polar science.

In my free time I like to explore the outdoors through hiking, biking, and camping with my family. I enjoy cooking and, even more so, eating. Ultimately, though, my favorite hobby is hanging out, which you can often find me doing with my dog, Frankie.
