Jacob Richards serves as the GIS Data Manager for the ATF, where he finds joy collecting, sorting, organizing, and visualizing data. Born in the hills of Tennessee, graduating from the University of Alabama, a stint in Minneapolis, deployments in disaster recovery from Napa to Puerto Rico, and currently living in ever sunny Albuquerque, he is able to find pleasure in all landscapes and climates. Jacob spends most of his time taking care of REDACTED NUMBER of cats and gardening. He loves to spend time hiking on any quiet trail, and is a FAA drone pilot so often is seen capturing reality from a birds eye view. In his free time, you will almost always find Jacob listening to the Grateful Dead near one of his many Que smokers and grills bringing southern food and smiles to the southwest.
