During high school, I got an opportunity to work on the software side of the Microsoft Keyboards and Mice team in Redmond, WA. After high school, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA taking a brief break to work on Microsoft .NET Framework in Dublin, Ireland. I then moved to Austin, TX and worked on the eCommerce Team at National Instruments. In 2009, I moved with my wife to Portland, OR to begin graduate school in Urban Studies at Portland State University.
I am currently Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and have lived in Baltimore since 2017.
And it’s Mah-moo-dee. Think of “map” when you say “Mah.”
