Hi! I am a big believer in big cities and fascinated by the urban transportation infrastructure that supports such levels of density and dynamism. I am from NYC and I have previously worked for MTA NYC Transit. I studied urban planning at school, and I am a licensed NYC tour guide, as well as an AICP certified urban planner.
