I've been an active OpenStreetMapper since 2008 and I mostly map in the Washington, DC area with MappingDC. Though most of my active mapping is in the capital region, I often map areas I visit as a means to get acquainted with a new place. Lately, I've been doing street surveys using FieldPapers to capture hyperlocal features that may be useful at a neighborhood or community level. I also focus on collecting bike and foot paths in parks and natural areas. I served on the charter board of the United States Chapter and am now an organizer for the TeachOSM project.
