Amazon Web Services
Geospatial Lead
I am the Geo-spatial Lead on the Specialist Team at AWS. I am part of the World Wide Public Sector Solution Architecture team and thus have global scope to support our customers around the world. While building a team of SAs with geospatial expertise, I also support our Scientific Compute and Open Data teams on projects such Earth on AWS.
Here is a recent example of a workshop I supported that has to do working with big radar data in S3.

Before my specialist role, I was the first Solution Architect on the SLED team and supported a number of customers that are now public references such as Coursera, Stanford University and King County, WA.


I like to take problems, break them down and create technology strategies that can be communicated to engineers and managed to completion.
I am a web applications development and geospatial professional with experience in the US and Japan. Academic background includes a Master's degree from MIT's School of Architecture and Planning with a focus on technology transfer.
