Walking and cycling have always been a part of who I am. From weekend hikes with the Boy Scouts to the infamous ride on my tricycle that got me grounded for a week without wheels, alternative modes of transportation are a an essential component of my DNA. When I returned my leased Ford Explorer and, after refusing offers to trade up to another vehicle, got onto the closest Metro bus and never looked back, I came full circle. Working at Alta allows me to indulge in all my passions of designing for active transportation facilities and directing my passion for "walking the talk" into all aspects of my life.
