    Wicked Boston

    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.

    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
