Shout out to Laura Scarano and UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs for spotlighting my work and C1TYPLANN3RCo in Luskin Forum Summer 2021, “Alumnus Founds Company to Promote Embedded Planning.”
WE CANNOT PLAN FROM OUR DESKS.
The Boyz N The Hood film and years of street reporting on NWA albums helped me become an urban planner in/for South Central LA.
I learned the word “gentrification” from Furious Styles’s speech on the street corner in Compton.
I started tutoring students online during the COVID-19 pandemic and brought together my passions in Librarianship and Urban Planning. In this Medium article, I wrote about becoming a Virtual Librarian with specializations in Urban Studies, Urban Planning, and Library & Information Science.
