Professional consulting capabilities
Data analysis: If you have a large, intimidating dataset that you need help getting reliable and understandable results from, I can help you.  I have  considerable expertise in collecting, maintaining and analyzing all kinds of data. Here are some examples of what I've done:
GIS analysis: Everything is easier to see when it's on a map and I can make that happen with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analysis.  From making custom maps to performing complex analyses showing the relationships between disparate data,I will help you see your information in a new way.
