I want to be a GIS Intern and then Analyst for ESRI and/or the CIA. I am the eldest son of a 32-year Army vet, so cordiality, manners, honor, loyalty, respect, and selflessness are instilled in my character. I have over 3 years of retail experience; 9 years of political engagement and theory; 10 years of carpentry training. I've been an effective leader and instructor-over 3 years of experience (YLEAD Junior Instructor, Coach). With age, I've developed excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to work with diverse clientele and liaison to field personnel. I am a positive, disciplined and driven individual with a proven history of producing outstanding results in my work assignments and personal relationships. I believe this job can help me reach my goals, while I help you reach yours.

Additional Information

Overall, I just want you to know that I'm an awesome and trustworthy human being, and kick ass in about anything I set my mind to. I want to be part of a team and use my talents to help meet and exceed goals. I am full of tangential information that often comes in handy in the most obtuse situations and conversations. I'm a joy to be around and always walk around with an excess of kindness to give to others. I show up, I do a great job and have fun doing it, then I go home.
I just finished my general education after a long academic journey and I'm looking for a job until I start my GIS program at CSULA, and then use that knowledge to implement the dRHS subterranean irrigation system to virtually end droughts in California and clean up the state and the ocean at the same time.
