Wildland FirefighterMay 2012 to Oct 2015 U.S. Forest Service － Lolo National Forest, MontanaWorked two seasons (2012, 2015) as a district firefighter in Seeley Lake, MT and one season (2013) as a hotshot with the Lolo Interagency Hotshots in Missoula, MT. Aside from general firefighting, duties often included locating fires using paper maps and compasses, then navigating to fires by either following the map, or by plotting the point's coordinates and following a handheld GPS. On established fires, GPS was often used to communicate locations to air units and other ground units, and to plot fire perimeters and calculate area.
LoggerMay 2014 to Aug 2014 Salmon River Wood － Missoula, MontanaDuties included chainsaw operation (felling and limbing trees, squaring butts, notching stumps for guyback cables), hooking and unhooking logs, and heavy equipment operation. Although not directly applicable to GIS work, this job required acute attentiveness and goal-oriented teamwork.
Infantry Team Leader - 1st BN 4th MAR, 1st Marine DivisionAug 2007 to May 2011 United States Marine Corps
Team Leader: Managed 4-5 subordinates while coordinating operations with other team leaders and overhead under fast-paced and stressful combat operations. This position required quick thinking and an ability to execute creative solutions to complex problems in a dynamic environment.
Point Man / Lead Vehicle: My team was the lead in our platoon for both foot and vehicle patrols. As a team leader, I was required to have an acute sense of direction, to study maps of unknown areas, correct and append maps of known areas, as well as navigate my platoon along a designated route and choose a new route if the situation demanded it. Tools used included handheld GPS units and vehicle-mounted Blue Force Tracker GPS units.
Forward Observer: As a forward observer, I was trained to calculate enemy positions and coordinate indirect fire using mostly paper-map and compass methods. This position, although not directly related to computer GIS, required acute spatial cognition and an intimate knowledge of maps and geography.
