Cartography using OCAD.  Based in Virginia, USA
"I was born in Switzerland, have competed worldwide, and done mapping and drafting by hand and OCAD for more than 40 years. Physical limitations have left me unable to move through uneven ground, but drafting I can still do. I would welcome your OCAD work."
