Solution Architect


November 2008 – December 2014 (6 years 2 months)

Since GIS has grown from the back office to the enterprise, many organizations, large and small, need assistance realizing the potential for what geospatial technologies can do for them. Andrew assists in this arena. He helped ESRI clients in the design, development, and deployment of their geo-enabled information systems.

Manager, Spatial Data Analysis & Geographic Information Systems

Verizon Wireless

April 2000 – November 2008 (8 years 8 months)

Andrew was responsible for the management, development, and support of Verizon Wireless's web-based Geographic Information System. He designed and built the system from the ground up, with no existing application in place prior. This system is utilized internally to map, model and solve complex spatial analysis issues as they relate to the Verizon Wireless network landscape including EOC operations. He also managed the directional Spatial Data Process which supports the flow of coverage information and other spatial data from Verizon's network RF Engineers to collateral available in a Verizon Wireless retail store. Lastly, Andrew was responsible for the management and scheduling of ad-hoc cartographic requests and complex spatial analysis that support all aspects of the Verizon enterprise.
