In 2009, David McCutcheon, ex-Project Manager at Lovell Johns, went solo with his mapping career.  I owe most of my skills and mapping know-how to David and I consider him to be my map mentor.  I partnered up with David and we continue to create many beautiful maps together.  We do however have the freedom to find and work on our own projects.
