About     Maps     Photos

I like to make maps. Below are links to a number of my cartography projects, as well as a few other visual experiments (data viz, sketches, notes, etc.). These projects vary quite a bit in terms of scope, scale, process, and purpose. Feel free to contact me at for any comments or questions. Most are available under Creative Commons licenses, and a few I've uploaded to Wikipedia. I also spend some of my leisure time contributing to OpenStreetMap.
