Cities are the future.
Currently, I am an economic development planner with the UIC Great Cities Institute. At GCI, I work at the neighborhood level to organize low-income communities' wants and needs and advocate for resources for enhancing the quality of life for residents.
I hold a master of urban planning and policy degree from UIC, and a bachelors of art in environment planning and design degree from UNM.
Interests include all things planning related: urban studies, infrastructure, community development, public health, equality, social development, segregation and gentrification, transportation, international development, and globalization.
