Western Offices GIS Coordinator
David Mellon is the CRA Western Offices GIS Coordinator. As a long time Geographic Information Systems Specialist (with a BA in Environmental Conservation from the University of Colorado), he has worked in support of environmental consultants such as hydrologists, geochemists, ecologists and land use planners. David is happy to now be serving archaeologists and helping to preserve human cultural resources.
David grew up in western Pennsylvania, but it was not until moving to Colorado that his passion for geography, the outdoors and conservation really grew. A natural love of maps has served him well, having found a career in working with them and helping people to visualize and analyze real world geographic problems. He’s also a map nut on outdoor trips and is often the navigator for group excursions in the wilderness.
He enjoys running, hiking, climbing, skiing, and, closer to home, working in the yard, garden and kitchen – with family (wife Julie, kids Erica and Eli, and dog Chloe), friends, or by himself.
