We’re thrilled to welcome Lyzi to the Mapbox team! As a co-founder of the geo education-focused Maptime meetup series and a longtime OpenStreetMap contributor, we have no doubt she’ll continue to stir up the geo space and with her energy for teaching and building. Previously, Lyzi was a Code for America Fellow with the City of Lexington, Kentucky and got her hands dirty with GIS and cartography at the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI). At Mapbox, she’ll write documentation and tutorials and generally make Mapbox tools easier to use.

Say hello to Lyzi and ask her about getting started making maps, how to get involved with Maptime in your city, or her obsessive love of Oregon Ducks football.
