Combining ArcGIS with Adobe Illustrator to create beautiful maps that tell your story

I've been doing maps for years in Adobe Illustrator and recently added the incredible power of GIS. I can take available GIS datasets or your location data, build a super-accurate base in ArcGIS, and then flip it into Adobe Illustrator to create beautiful vector maps with a dpi resolution suitable for print, presentations, and online.

In May I finished two years of study at Tarrant County College and received my GIS certification. I studied vector and raster analysis, geodatabase management, GIS app development, HTM, CSS, and web Javascript. I studied with David W. Allen, who literally wrote the book on GIS--he's author of all the ArcGIS training textbooks. My instructors also included a number of Corps of Engineers GIS cartographers.

For my internship, I spent seven weeks at the Smithsonian Institute's Facilities Knowledge Management department in Washington, D.C. I studied how SI's new standards for Building Information Modeling (BIM) integrate into their construction and design process and support their GIS databases.

I am by no means a GIS expert but I continue to study and am using GIS almost daily to execute freelance cartography projects.

Contact me if you have vector GIS projects overwhelming your team and they could use extra hands. Or do you have existing ArcGIS maps that need enhancing? I'm open to traveling to meet with your team and I'm an expert at working long-distance."
