Maps for the Getaway is a weekly newsletter about geography, technology, politics, and culture and how they intersect. Starting in October, I release new posts on Thursdays. Posts on the first and third Thursday of each month are free and posts on the second and fourth Thursday are paid-subscribers only.

The name of my newsletter, Maps for the Getaway, was shamelessly stolen from an Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness song.

Who are you?

I was a geospatial technologist on a health-related contract from 2017 until 2021. Before that, I worked on geographic analysis of mostly law enforcement data from 2011-2016. Here is my academic CV for people who find those interesting. I am also the chair of the Neoliberal Project steering committee, an English Wikipedia functionary, a menswear nerd, and a champion beard grower. I live in the Copenhagen, Denmark with my wife and our rescued Black Lab-Burmese Mountain Dog Mix. For more info, check my website and my Twitter.
