Transportation planner in Avondale, Chicago, Illinois. Graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago, sociology and urban planning.

From 2012 to 2014, I edit OpenStreetMap mainly in Chicago to support the base data I use in my app Chicago Bike Guide. I use osm2pgsql and MapBox's TileMil to generate tiles that are installed into the device. I also edit buildings and addresses to support the geocoding and reverse geocoding used by Chicago Cityscape.
