Overview

My background is in ecology, wildlife management and computers. I enjoy any opportunity to combine the two. I have experience creating databases and managing medium-large amounts of field data for an ongoing project. I am a strong english writer with experience writing technical reports, website content, public outreach material and education programs.

Service Description

Excel work: I have intermediate to advance knowledge of Excel including: pivot tables, vlookup, macros and vba

English Writing, and Editing: I have strong English writing skills and have written edited online and offline public outreach materials for a non-profit conservation project. I have also co-authored a report for a study on bats carried out for the Stanley Park Ecology Society which has been made available on their website.

I have a very high level of general computer knowledge and have owned and used computers since the early 90's. I'm comfortable working with and have used all versions of Windows (from 3.1 to 8). I'm also an intermediate linux user and have experience setting up and running webservers using LAMP. I'm comfortable using BASH and manually installing and configuring Linux systems.

I have some website creation and administration experience. I setup and continue to administrate scbat.org for the South Coast Bat Action Team. I have limited experience using Javascript and the Openlayers API to create SCBAT's online map.

I have beginner knowledge of ArcGis and the Esri suite and a copy of the software. I've used ArcMap to create maps from existing geospatial data and I'm comfortable creating layers in ArcMap from imported raster and vector data.
