Kevin Flaherty

Day job: GIS Analyst, Microsoft

GIS Focus: Transportation, Survey Sampling, Participatory GIS, Community Organization.

Kevin has spent the last five years working in the public sector and has a varied background in transportation, utilities, software development and advocacy. He received his master’s degree in 2014 from California State University Long Beach’s Geography Department where he wrote a thesis on technological adoption in local communities. As a GIS Business Analyst, Kevin has carved himself a niche at the intersection of business development and geospatial analysis based upon his understanding of FME, GIS and SQL Server. During the week when he isn’t at work, Kevin can be found braving the dangerous streets of San Francisco on his Surly Crosscheck and on the weekend he rides his Long Haul Trucker on various dirt roads in Marin, San Mateo and Contra Costa.
