It's now 2018 and I live in Astoria, Oregon, at the mouth of the mighty Columbia River.
I am a GIS technician for Clatsop County.
I am co-founder of GEO-CEG (hard C like KEG), a non-profit dedicated to bring GIS to small communities.
I have a GIS certificate from Oregon State, I also studied GIS at CSU Monterey Bay, and have a BS in Computer Science from Sonoma State in California.
I keep track of what I am doing (in general, not just OSM stuff) at http://wildsong.biz/ This includes everything, PIC processors, GPS, dead birds (COASST), Linux, bicycles, home appliances...
