Geospatial Developer and Government Business Lead
Anthony studied at Algonquin College and has a diploma in Geomatics. He worked for the Department of National Defence as a Geospatial Engineer before joining Sparkgeo in 2019. Prior to that, he was an infanteer.
An inquisitive child who enjoyed solving problems, Anthony remains a motivated autodidact. He thinks this is part of what drew him to Sparkgeo. He feels that the company displays a passion for solving real-world problems—and that it operates in a principled fashion.
Anthony works remotely from Ottawa where he concentrates on solving Canada’s national problems. The changing nature of his work is something Anthony appreciates. He likes how it keeps his days fresh. He also enjoys the opportunity to work with clients who have clear goals in mind.
Internally, Anthony is pushing Sparkgeo’s maturation in project management. His involvement is helping our small company adapt to more stronger project management practices. He’s also working to help Sparkgeo clients better recognize the importance of location.
Anthony considers geospatial a perfect balance of art and science. He likes how he can spend hours trying to figure out complex mathematical representations of data. Whereas, at another time he might need to determine which color best compliments the story being told.
Having visited many many places around the world, PEI will always have a special place in Anthony’s heart. He loves Brackley Beach and experiences a profound calming effect when he’s there.
At home, Anthony is a husband, outdoor enthusiast, space geek, health nut, coffee snob, animal lover, gamer, and computer hardware hobbyist. In his spare time, he enjoys reading books on philosophy—and having long-winded discussions about them.
