John is the GIS Project Manager on the Justice and Enterprise Services Team.
John joins Azavea with over 13 years experience working in geographic information systems, database design and analysis, web development and design, and has focused for the last two years on managing large scale web application development projects. He graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classical Studies and Anthropology.
Before joining the team at Azavea he worked at Spectrum Creative Solutions, leading the development team that produced a content managed, data driven marketing platform for higher education recruiting. He also worked at A.D. Marble & Company, where he employed spatial analysis tools to predict prehistoric archaeological site probability and to model wildlife habitat suitability across the entire Delaware watershed.
During his free time you can find him fiddling with new jQuery plugins or APIs from Google Maps to Last.fm. After closing his computer, John will either be pedaling his bicycle around his native Philadelphia, improving his bow technique on the acoustic bass, or trying to determine by taste which hops variety was used to bitter that beer in his glass.
