I’m currently the founder of GeoIQ – a collaborative web platform for geographic data analysis. GeoIQ is largely the fusion of a variety of interests and experiences in geography, GIS, infrastructure, physics, statistical mechanics, and generally making the world of data (especially the geospatial variety) available to the masses. Previously I was in academia as a post doc and grad student at George Mason University and before that the University of Florida.

In between I worked for a couple of start ups in the DC area building online communities, Geo-IP location, and mapping telecom infrastructure. Randomly all three play a small role in the current endeavor.
