My name is Craig Hartel, and I have been mapping since 1992. I am currently employed as a Geomatics Technician, and I use ESRI ArcMap for most of my work. I do some work in ArcInfo as well.
I live and work in northeastern British Columbia, Canada, and I have family in the Philippines. While I am new to OSM, I think I will be able to learn the ropes fairly quickly and be able to help out in a meaningful way. At present, my preference is to help out mapping the Philippines.
