Dirk Munson is from Chicago, IL in the USA
My neighborhood on the North side of Chicago:
I am a citified former Iowan who has lived throughout the North side of Chicago for seven years. In a former life, I was the Midwest Regional Ambassador for OpenStreetMap.org, and worked to broaden its reach throughout the Midwest.
Nowadays, I have less time available, but am still an ardent supporter of OSM.
