My hometown of Tyler, TX is located in the Piney Woods of East Texas where there are lovely people and a history of oil. Lots of oil. This is the place where I first learned to ride a bike and gave my first public speech. I love Tyler for it’s eclectic mix of old traditions and new cultures. The food is also excellent.

Connecting the Dots (C-T-D) is a project that I started in the summer of 2011 to begin imagining awesome places in Tyler, TX that are all connected by transportation, trails, parks, street trees, and other various urban forms that help to unify cities.
