What started out being a job I hated turned into a job I enjoy a lot. I am a GIS specialist II producing, analyzing and researching maps for Williams, a fortune 500 company in Houston, Texas. I'm basically a cartographer that deals with very deep data intensive information. I never thought I'd ever use my degree again and now I use it every day. If it were not for my SCAD education I would not be able to produce the maps that I produce today. It's satisfying that when I make a map that I depend a lot on my educational background in art.
I am currently taking night classes to be certified in GIS, while at the same time seriously considering getting a degree in GIS. Life is what you make it and unpredictable. A lot of it is attitude and the choices we make. To further emphasis this, if I had never taken the road less traveled, not only would I not be a cartographer today paving a new career for myself, but I would also never have had a chance to work on an offshore platform and turn into a cowboy. Yes, a cowboy. Now, that's a whole other story. Perhaps one day I can share that with you." (updated 07/24/11)
