“I like maps.” That was my response to the ‘what are you studying?’ question at my grad school orientation. Three words to sum up my academic interests while everyone else spouted off paragraph-sized sentences including words most people don’t know exist. This was my first inclination that maybe the ivory tower world wasn't for me. Now, having finished grad school and dabbled in academia as a Visiting Assistant Professor (lucky enough to teach some amazing students!), I’m indulging my more artistic side that’s simply been begging to come out, buried beneath journal articles and papers to grade. Thus was born All Mapped Out in March of 2012. By day I work for a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the discipline of geography and geography education, by night (and weekends) I craft cartography-inspired products.
What’s with the name, 'All Mapped Out'?…
