Re: Forum demographics

To elaborate, I've lived in New England since 2005 (born and spent much of my childhood in Pennsylvania but that's irrelevant). I found this website after it was mentioned in a Boston Globe Magazine article that quoted a forumer's opinion on a project. I also joined my other obsession SkyscraperCity around that time.

Went to high school in Massachusetts (Westford Academy, sounds super impressive) then Connecticut, then went to Boston University for Mechanical Engineering. Transferred to Central Connecticut State University for Geography with a minor in GIS and a concentration in Urban Planning as BU was phasing out their undergrad geography program and it was also insanely expensive (the education was good though).

Spent 3 years finishing my undergrad as a commuter and living the life. Had a lot of fun but people aren't really going anywhere fast in CT from what I've seen. Best friend overdosed last year and had to leave far, far away (he is doing great now which I'm very glad to hear).

Finished my undergrad (had to drop the urban planning concentration to graduate though), spent one last crazy/ultimately unsatisfying summer in Connecticut, and started my Master's of Science in Geographic Information Science for Development and Environment at Clark University. Now doing great and being a serious academic with an actual upwards trajectory. I was so stuck back in CT so I'm very glad to have made my escape and at all the opportunities and intelligent peers Clark provides me.

Nice.

Edit: Oh wait, you are probably too old to get that joke.

Ya know, I can't see a Maserati or even the word Maserati without hearing Joe Fuckin' Walsh's voice start crooning in my head.

Re: Forum demographics

Ha! I think Joe said his did 185, which is lyrical fiction. The most I ever got out of mine was about 147 on the speedometer one Sunday morning on 128 in Needham. It had a little more in it, but the front end was getting really light. Plus its almost 60 years old.

I thought you were actually a dog. Have I been living a lie?

Re: Forum demographics

34m. I earn bread as a management consultant but also moonlight as an armchair architecture critic, unqualified transportation visionary, amateur sketchup designer, and verbose urban theorist. Always quick to answer a question nobody's asked. Originally from the Boston area, lived/worked/studied in London and NYC, returned here for work and to start a family. We've lived in Cambridge, Brookline and Brighton but just recently left with our 2 year old for the far-out burbs. My one area pet project is The Intercollegiate Museum of Arts and Sciences at Boston City Hall.
