I’ve always believed that the way our communities are built go hand in hand with the lifestyles we choose. Creating opportunities for biking and walking has the potential to reduce our contributions to climate change, promote our physical and mental health, and increase our sense of belonging. At Alta, I hope to design communities in a way that helps people to live the lifestyle they want.
