I'm from Boston and looking for a career change. My undergraduate work was in International Affairs but I am looking for work involving society, infrastructure and their problems. It seems Planning deals with these things and more. In the near future I'll begin an introductory course in GIS at a local university.
I'm interested in the issues of accessibility, particularly of food and water. What drives me into this field is a hope for the redemption and renewal of our built environments, and ultimately redemption and renewal of society.
