Chris Henrick currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and recently graduated from the Parsons MFA Design and Technology program at the New School in New York City. His thesis at MFA DT was a web app he conceptualized and coded called Am I Rent Stabilized? that seeks to solve the problem of NYC landlords lying to tenants about rent-stabilization and illegally deregulating rent-stabilized apartments. You can learn more about it in an article he wrote for Urban Omnibus.

Chris has consulted for groups such as Stamen Design, Pratt’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative, and Radish Lab. Prior to attending Parsons Chris worked as a Cartographer and GIS specialist at Avalon Travel Publishing in Berkeley, CA. He originally got his start in “geo” as a GIS / Cartographer intern at GreenInfo Network in San Francisco, CA in 2010. Since then, Chris has performed consultant work for the Oakland Museum of California, as well as for a number of independent and self-published authors such as Rebecca Solnit. His undergraduate degree is in Geography and Urban Studies, from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.

In his spare time Chris helps organize and facilitate Maptime NYC, a volunteer group dedicated to educating non-experts about GIS, cartography, and interactive web-mapping; free of charge. Read Less
