After a nearly three year hiatus I am resetting this blog. I have a new alter-ego, living in a new city, and starting a new stage of of my intellectual growth and adult life.
For those of you who don't know me, I'm the surly urbanist. I'm a grad student at Portland State University in beautiful Portland, OR. I am interested in the field urban ecology, its intersections with urban planning, and issues of urban development in a resource-constrained world. Beyond that, I'm just a nerdy black dude trying to get his PhD. I look forward to the trip.
