I'm in upstate New York, near Albany. Working on TIGER fixups in the area, NY State Highway relations, and on occasional road trips. I am currently employed as a consultant in Networking/Security/Software development, but am planning to return to grad school in Computer Science at UAlbany in January 2017.
I served on the founding board of OSM US and for one year as President.
I have an ongoing interest in improving the map of the US and improving the community in the US.
Over the years, the US chapter has experimented with various committees and working groups, but only intermittent success. I believe that we need to work at engaging more members in these efforts. We also have outreach needs. We have many excellent things going on but considerable confusion in the GIS world outside of OSM as to how things work.
