    Hello! Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a Graphic Designer by heart and by trade, with a particular love for creating beautiful maps. Because of my passion for Graphic Design, I've always enjoyed creating Flyers, Albums, and Posters. My previous profession lead me down a path of discovering Cartography, Map Creation, and I even have some experience in GIS. With all of this, I've honed in on this unique type of art for over a decade. I pride myself in the creation of attractive, static maps while still providing functionality tailored to the client's needs. My eye for color and strong layout skills are what set me apart from many other GIS Specialists or Cartographers. Please visit my portfolio! badbeet.me Please see my feedback and give me a chance! I am efficient, and I would consider myself very easy to work with. I work very hard to not only get you a great product, but to get it to you on your schedule and within your budget. I also love cats, vintage guitars, and Chicago style pizza (who doesn't love pizza?). I play in some bands around the city, and I even have a music-related weekly podcast. Thanks for swinging by! David

    I create interactive web maps (or static maps depending on your use case) and conduct spatial data research and analysis. For example, I create maps that display data as a choropleth (colored polygons), point, line, flow, and/or heatmap. User interaction can include zooming in/out, clicking on features to display a popup with more information, and filtering data by some category. I am a graduate of the New Maps Plus program at the University of Kentucky (Master's program), where I have honed my skills in spatial data visualization and web development. I am familiar and capable of working on projects in JavaScript, Node.js, Python, and Microsoft Excel, for example. For my undergrad, I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. Additionally, I have experience in air dispersion modeling, including running AERMOD and mapping results.
