    Veteran Planner / classic technophobe

    This is my first entry into the world of forums. I look forward to future exchanges with all participants. After 35 years in the field -- encompassing community, economic, and transportation issues -- I was recently let go from a major multi-discipline firm and am seeking to reconnect on a new basis to the profession. My background includes small and large scale planning projects, EIS development for major highway and transit projects, leadership of a large, public interest, development non-profit and an ongoing passion to help great urban places thrive.

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
