A cartographer! You know, someone who makes maps? Is that still a thing people do? Probably for Google and Apple, at least. I was always drawing maps of places (both real and imagined) when I was supposed to be paying attention at school.
What could we probably find you doing when you're not at the station?
I like training for and racing in half marathons, so probably running. Otherwise I might be producing music, playing video games, having a "tickle fight" with my kids, or watching sports (mostly my beloved K-State Wildcats, KC Chiefs & Royals, and IndyCar races).

How would you describe your job to an alien who had no idea what you were talking about?
I say a lot of words and hope that a few might mean something to somebody. Beyond that, I design graphics, create interfaces, and develop strategies for people to interact with our "brand," which is kind of like a personality but for organizations as opposed to individuals... you know what, let's just forget all that and stick to the first sentence.
