I began as an art major but knew something was missing. I was always a junkie for maps, travel, and science, so I added a geography major to my degree. After a year at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, first as a cartographer and then as a hydrologist, I went to the Minnesota Geological Survey to draw geologic maps full time. After three years there, I worked briefly for a civil engineering company and then moved to China for a year to teach English.

When I returned, I attended graduate school in geography and landed an internship with the National Geographic Society. I worked for three years in the graphics department of the local transit authority. From there, I began my freelance career, which initially focused on map production.
