    New Member from Boston

    Good evening everyone, I'm a recent grad of the Boston University Master's City Planning program living in one of Boston's many neighborhoods. I've heard about the Cyburbia forums before but have only just recently started looking around to see what they have to offer. I'm doing an internship with a regional organization in the city but I'm still pretty green, and I've been shooting out applications to try and find a permanent position here or somewhere in the Northeast (preferably). I will definitely be posting some questions in the job/career section to get some advice, because boy, every employer likes to do things a little different.

    Some of my interests in brief: planning philosophy, ecology and the impact of development on the environment, active transportation and transit, affordable housing development.

    I look forward to engaging with you all!

    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

    Utah sends it's best. By that I mean I'm the best it has to offer and I'm sending you this greeting.
