Generalist, programmer, data analyst, data scientist, web developer, and more, I am on the
left in the adjacent picture. On the right is my very brilliant and wonderful wife, Natalie, who, like myself,
loves to read, has an affinity for knowledge of most anything, cooks great meals (yes, I do too :) ),
and wants to see the world.
I am currently employed under the
Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research
NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (NOAA-GLERL)
in Ann Arbor, MI.
Many thanks goes to all who (or that) have funded my work thus far. These entities include the Great
Lakes Restoration Initiative, CIGLR, the International Joint Commission's International Watersheds
Initiative, the US Army Corps of Engineers out of Detroit, Environment and Climate Change Canada,
the Coordinating Committee on Great Lakes Basic Hydraulic and Hydrologic Data, and NOAA-GLERL.
I reside in Saline, MI, USA, and may be reached at jpTheSmithe@gmail.com
or +1-734-972-8096. Outside of main employment, I am open to small, short-term tasks of a wide variety. Please also see
