Growing up in the car-centric world of rural northeast Connecticut, walking and biking to my destinations was rarely an option. It was not until I was exposed to the concept of New Urbanism during college that I began to appreciate the fact that there are often better transportation options than the automobile. After being involved in designing complete streets and other bicycle and pedestrian friendly facilities, I started to truly appreciate their value. As I continue to grow as an engineer, I look forward to improving communities by designing context sensitive facilities that will incorporate all appropriate modes of transportation.
