Custom Geospatial Solutions
Data Visualization and Analysis.
Starting in the public utility sector and moving quickly into private environmental consulting, my GIS expertise spans a wide variety of project work. I bring a diverse set of skills from basic cartography to critical thinking, data analysis, report writing, presentations and much more. I actively engage and collaborate with my clients to deliver high quality products, on time and under budget.
GIS is a powerful and versatile tool. I love the visual storytelling aspect of the process. I am constantly intrigued at being able to take complex data sets that are difficult to decipher for most people and turning that data into a compelling and understandable visual story. If a picture says a thousand words just think what a well designed map can get across to your audience.
GIS, photography, graphic design and web hosting/design are all in my wheel house. This allows me to customize many aspects of any project.

“I had the pleasure of working with Eric on a high stress, schedule driven permitting project. He served as the GIS lead for the project and was the consummate professional. He was able to manage data from a disparate group of sources and always had information up to date and in hand. Eric attended all of our meetings that included representatives from federal, state, and local governments, Tribes, attorneys, consultants, engineers, and the public. He was superb in presenting information, could seamlessly transition from disciplines and was great at anticipating needs. Eric was a perfectionist-our maps/presentation materials were always spot on and well received. I would recommend him without hesitation.”Karen B. ~ Vice President, AECOM.
“I worked with Eric at Tetra Tech’s Portland office while I was a civil engineer/project manager for wind energy projects, and Eric was a GIS specialist. His professionalism and knowledge of GIS, mapmaking, and integration with AutoCAD was invaluable in the completion of our projects. Eric was always happy to help and do whatever was needed to keep the project moving, and has an attention to detail that is a must in this line of work. In addition, I’ve climbed a mountain or two with Eric, so I know he’s one tough dude. He definitely will do what it takes to get the job done.”Alex L. ~ Project Civil Engineering Manager, Avangrid Renewables.
