The possibilities are endless! I always am trying to push myself and explore new visual styles digitally. Everything from city zoning maps to skin tracks high in the alpine. If you have a map idea, bring it on.
I partnered with a design firm and Kansas City to develop a new map set that better reflects the values of the new urban plan. Connecting nature, industry and community, I used green earth tones, and darker, blues and greys to express the connections they were trying to make, and the customers they were hoping to attract.
This was a personal project I tried out just for kicks. A very popular art style these days that bridges the gap between historic topo maps and new cutting edge methods of modelling relief. The basemap is a 1968 USGS 7.5 min quad of Manson WA, and the shaded relief was modelled in Blender and compiled in photoshop.
This map was created for Home Decor Maps, in a style similar to the 50 state series we had partnered on for the last 2 years. It's meant to be modern, elegant, and minimalistic. Something that people want to hang up on their walls. Terrain and major roads are shown, physical features are labelled and that's pretty much it.
Reference map of the area around Mexico's tallest peak (and North America's 3rd). Landcover data, satellite imagery, and elevation were combined to create a basemap that expresses the regions' unique topography and weather patterns.
Created in the fall of 2021 as a donation piece for the Utah Avalanche Center. The base of this map was hand painted with acrylics, and it is a great example of how art and real world data can be combined through the medium of cartography. And! Over $2500 in profits have been donated to the UAC since the print was released!
This was a fun little map series for a client who wanted to commemorate 3 summer backpacking trips through the medium of maps. He wanted them to be colorful, minimalistic and only show what was special about that adventure. A custom mountain icon was also drawn for each map.
Bend! It's such a cute little town, with such incredibly easy access to outdoor spaces. I grew up climbing and skiing in Bend, and my parents are in the process of moving down there (like everyone else and their dog). This map was originally a gift to them, trying to capture the character of the city, while also helping them get a sense of place. but it is now also on sale on Etsy, and this style has since become a series.
This map, is my pride and joy. I have always wanted to take a stab at utilizing the swiss style of drawing rocks. Hand drawn pen and ink illustration traced from satellite imagery were combined with a graphite hillshade and compiled in photoshop with various other layers to create a visually appealling map of ridgeline ski routes off the Bridger Mountain range in SW Montana.
A comprehensive map that summed up global data from various sources, to show current remaining old growth forests, and what is being threatened by human encroachment.
Social and Physical science research through GIS analysis and spatial statistics. I am particularly passionate in cartography for Earth Sciences (water/ice resources, geology, gemorphology, energy, ecology, fire) but am available for any type of place based anaylsis work! Experienced in industry standard (ArcGIS Pro, Adobe, etc.) as well as open source software (QGIS, Mapbox, Python, R)
A research project conducted on the recent boundary changes in the BENM region and what geographic effects those changes could have on Native Archeological sites, Biodiversity, and Paleontological importance.
The second half of the initial BENM research project. Analysis was run on the suceptibility of Uranium mining byproduct to infiltrate local native, water, land and air.
This was a lab project in which remote sensing technology and raster analysis were used to quantify burn intensity of a recent fire in the Bridger Mountains.
This was a comprehnsive, and literature review based project to visualize both fossil fuel and renewable resources in one of North America's larges
LANDSAT data was used to quanitfy ice & perennial snow loss over 20 years. This data was quantified in respect to each specific glaicer, aspect, and elevation
A heavily GIS based fluvial geomorphology analysis investigating various hypotheses of the formationn of the Kasei Valleys. Group project for Geomorph 307.
A figure depicted ongoing research in the Northern Chilean Andes. Rendered in Blender, this was an experimentation in 3d Visualization and styling.
A draft map of a geomorphologic research project in Northern Chile. One of the really fun parts of this project was getting to work on symbolizing geologic formations. And my spanish skills!
A figure accompanying a lab report for ERTH 450. Illustrating various aspects of the avalanche problem and mitigation solutions on Lone Peak.
Blending the art of hand drawn illustration & digital coloring to create maps that really pop! Great for events, races, illustrative travel maps, tourism properties and long distance adventures!
This was a poster I got to work on for TRIALS OF MILES - inspired by the beautiful and rugged Mount San Antoinio and the hills around Los Angeles.
In the summer of 2020, I hiked the Colorado trail, as it runs 500 miles from Denver to Durango. This map is a tribute to the trail, and that experience. Prints available on Etsy!
The kickoff trail run for RACE THE BRONX, a new running community dedicated to one of NYC's most eclectic bouroughs. The goal with this map was to make something poppy, bright and fun, with just a hint of 90 style.
Property map for a rustic yet modern renovated schoolhouse property in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge.
A tourism map of Nantucket, illustrating major neighborhoods, beaches, landmarks, and the famous rainbow fleet. This piece was drawn in pen and ink, painted in watercolor, and edited digitally.
This was a fun little map for a walking tour company in Asheville North Carolina! Various stops and businesses are highlighted along the way.
Sometimes all you need is sweet and simple. Black and white linework done by hand, gets the point across, and shows everything you need and nothing more.
TRIALS OF MILES's very first ultra! This is an awesome 50 mile route that follows the Hudson 12 miles along 2 trails and loops the whole circuttwice.
The first map in a series of races centered around climbing peaks in Los Angeles. TRIALS OF MILES will be releasing a new segment challenge of this style monthly.
2021 Boston Chase the Throne Segment. I love how simple this map turned out, yet it still very clearly communicates the route.
A race map in conjunction with the 2021 Olympic Trials held in Eugene Oregon. Bits of the city, and the natural landscape surrounding the landscape was highlighted.
Colorado's most famous 14er! This map was created in partnership with McGovern & Co, and will be featured on products and apparel in the new visitor center.

I paint large maps too! A fun bright map mural can brighten up any space.
