(The GRID Blogger) Jamaal Davis: Richmond, Virginia

Jamaal DavisA big Global Site Plans welcome to our newest blogger, Jamaal Davis from Richmond, Virginia.

Jamaal Davis currently resides in Richmond, Virginia where he was born and raised. He currently holds a Masters of Urban and Regional Planning Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. His interests in urban planning began in the low-income neighborhoods of Southside Richmond, Virginia. As a result of those years, he has made it his goal to affect change in his community by changing its surroundings. His passion for planning lies in his desire to understand and change the housing conditions in low-income neighborhoods. He is currently working for a private consulting firm, but he plans on obtaining a planning position within a local government. His ultimate goal is to work for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Jamaal joins the June 2012 Environmental Design Internship program.
