As of this month, I'm happy to say that I'm now a graduate of the Pratt Institute Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development.

If you're interested in waste management, environmental justice, or New York City's waterfront, my graduate thesis is now available online at Academia.edu

I wrote most of my thesis before work and on the weekends, on and off for a year, and it was a memorable experience. I wrote my thesis in Scrivener and created maps in QGIS which I hope to write a little about soon.

Pratt's PSPD just released a new issue of MultipliCITY today, after what I'm sure was many late nights and weekends late this summer. Congrats to all the editors for all your hard work! 

I've written two short articles in this season's issue: one on our Spring presentations to the NY Metro APA, and another on my internship at the Hester Street Collaborative. You can find the whole thing at Issuu or embedded below:

What started as an embarrassing hobby (well, it's still a little embarrassing) has become my daily journal of the things I've done and places I've been. Foursquare let me know this week that I've been using the service for four years now, which roughly coincides with my move to Brooklyn.

Between services like Timehop and IFTTT, I've really become locked into the service as a way of tracking my life. What will become of this data, I have no idea - ten years from now I may not care at all what days I went to Bergen Bagels and what days I didn't. 

All the same, that much data can make for very pretty infographics
