I have over seven years of experience as a GIS Analyst and Cartographer, of which five were solely in New Zealand. I have good understanding of the GIS tools and programs: Arc Map, Arc Catalog, MS Excel and Microstation. I also have some experience in: Corel Draw, Python language, MS Access and Confirm Enterprise Data Base.

Between the years 2011-2013, I was working as a Geospatial Data Analyst for Auckland Council. I was responsible for several projects, including managing my GIS work, map design and analysis of data using Arc Map.

For Aerial Surveys Ltd, my key responsibilities were to create cartographic maps and to edit aerial photography. I was also responsible for updating a GPS database for the company’s website.

At Geosmart Ltd, I was mainly responsible for preparing street maps but I also supported the business activities with my mapping design skill sets. My work included creating Wises and AA Travel maps for many large cities throughout New Zealand.

Between 1999 and 2001 I was employed by an IT company in Israel called SELLA - Software Education Labs. My main role was to support the staff as a graphic designer although I also assisted my colleagues with any IT issues.
