(The GRID Blogger) Evan Comen: Raleigh, North Carolina

Evan ComenA big Global Site Plans welcome to our newest blogger, Evan Comen from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Evan Comen is an undergraduate at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pursuing a B.S. in both Economics and Environmental Studies and a minor in Urban Studies and Planning. A philosophical outlook towards education led his career aspirations to the realm of urban planning, which he intends to foster through the completion of a master’s program. Through growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina, and attending school in Chapel Hill, Evan has had the fortune of experiencing the unparalleled smart growth of the properly dubbed “Research Triangle;” a region in the Piedmont of North Carolina notorious for its numerously expansive high-tech companies. His blogs principally speak for the area’s burgeoning success. He is also a devoted cinephile, reader, and cyclist.

Evan joins the June 2012 Environmental Design Internship program.
