Currently: I am semi-retired after a career in the pharmaceutical industry, now doing a little consulting, working as a barista, and just published my first historical novel.

Location: Pennsylvania, USA

Why this cause: I am assisting this cause because I have contributed to other projects in Africa and felt I “had my eye in” for the terrain.  I am interested in doing a good, consistent job for whoever I am helping.

Why mapping: My daughter, who studies geographical information sciences, did a summer project mapping and also helped organise mapathons at George Washington University.  I thought it looked like a useful way to assist various causes and something to do while listening to podcasts.

Mapping since: 2018
