During free time, I like to contribute to social work that benefits large communities. I worked between 2008 and 2013 with Google on their Map Maker project to map the unmapped areas of the world — especially developing countries.
Since then, I have served in different community leading positions such as Power Mapper, Advocate and as a Regional Lead. It involves working with global community of mappers, guiding them, setting regional standards of mapping, organizing, and speaking at events and leading training sessions around the globe.
