"If you were to go back and tell me at ten years old what I'm doing today, I'd probably laugh in disbelief. I was a SimCity kid, loved skyscrapers, loved trees, loved numbers, and would get an Almanac every year for Christmas just to see if Orlando city-proper had cracked the top 100 for most populous US cities... xGeographic is my way to jettison this passion and my experience in the public sector for the benefit of our shared communities."
