This past year was an amazing year, to say the least. To my fortune, I passed my thesis defense in late April and graduated soon thereafter. After finishing at MSU in the Geography Department, I trekked down to Brasil where I completed a FLAS Fellowship to learn Portuguese and conduct research on the forthcoming megavents in that nation. Returning back to the states in August, I struggled to find a job in this tough economy for a month or so, getting by with freelance GIS contract work with local government agencies. Thankfully, around mid- October, I accepted a full-time position with TomTom as a Geographic Field Analyst, operating out of the Detroit Metro Area. To say I enjoy my job would be an understatement. I enjoy the daily challenges and pleasures of keeping the digital geospatial world in touch with reality. Overall, 2013 was an exceptional year, and one I am blessed to have experienced. Here is to an even better 2014 for all of us GEO alumni!
