Drone pilot and environmental science professional with a wide array of field surveying experience in environmental consulting and nonprofit. Experience with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and extensive experience with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) field data collection, post-processing and mapping. Was involved in a multi-collaborator USDA research project that monitored specialty crops and recently coordinated a citizen-science water quality monitoring project in California. Also recently conducted field data collection to ground-truth remotely sensed imagery, data management, vegetation sampling and canopy leaf area index (LAI) imagery analysis.
Self-motivated, detail-oriented and adaptable team player, I value collaboration and knowledge sharing through education and training, and can work independently. Interested in a diverse array of drone photography, videography and photogrammetry opportunities, in a diverse array of industries such as natural resources, real estate, construction, energy, agriculture and vegetation mapping. Vegetation surveying and mapping are actually one of my areas of expertise as a Field Biologist, so I wouldn’t mind translating these skills into the world of drones and doing some plant mapping work. Avid traveler with a passion for lifelong learning and making a difference. Currently live in the Metro Phoenix area, and I am willing to travel throughout Arizona and possibly in the Southwest.
Diverse drone, photography and mapping technical experience includes:
- UAV flight models: DJI Mavic series
- UAV software: DroneDeploy, DJI GO 4, B4UFLY
- Fisheye and 360-degree cameras
- GIS Mapping (ArcMap 10.x; ArcGIS Online)
