(The GRID Blogger) Robert Poole: San Francisco Bay Area, California

Robert PooleA big Global Site Plans welcome to our newest blogger, Robert Poole from the San Francisco Bay Area, California.

Robert Poole recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Anthropology and a minor in City and Regional Planning. He grew up in San Diego but now resides in Berkeley, where he has become intrigued by, yet concerned with the large discrepancies in socio-economic development.  He works at a boxing and muay thai kickboxing gym in a recently revived district of Oakland and interns for non-profits in San Francisco, conducting research that advocates for more affordable housing and community engagement.  His goals are to immerse himself in the world of urban and transportation planning, hoping to discover how to best address the various issues.  Robert’s blogs will primarily focus on the Bay Area’s methods towards solving its housing crisis and the region’s transit-oriented development projects.
