I am a soon-to-be Master of City Planning and a soon-to-be unemployed person. Check out my resume or find me on LinkedIn.
I live in Downtown Oakland, California and am a huge nerd. If you were walking down the street with me and said “why do they do that?”, I might respond with some long, rambling diatribe about tenant improvement programs or tax-increment financing, when all you really wanted to know was why people smoke when it’s bad for them, or why there’s a sequel to the Chipmunks movie. That’s what walking with me is like.
