Hannah (also go by Hank!):

I am interested in local Detroit culture, history and politics.
In general I'm interested in urban issues and politics, which describes my graduate and undergraduate academic careers, respectively. I indulge heavily in cynical and critical perspectives on local politics.
You can find me reading / ranting about: urban design, public transit, art, language, gender issues and social justice.

I enjoy good food, meaningful conversations, walkable places, local culture and maps. I also love some good blues and jazz which is in abundant supply in Detroit. I used to live in Mexico and also Chile, so I especially have a soft spot in my heart for latin culture and Mexican / Chilean cultures in particular.

I am a transportation planner by profession, but outside of work I weave, bike around and play soccer for a local rec league. I am a member of OmniCorpDetroit, a makerspace in Eastern Market. I volunteer in our neighborhood, at a local bike non-profit and in many other organizations. I'm likely to spend a weeknight going to a workshop, public meeting or board meeting.

Aragorn:

I am also very passionate about Detroit! I enjoy seeing the changes happening here every day. I have so many good friends that are living their dreams, starting farms, triple bottom line food businesses, working in social justice, urban planning, and creating amazing art projects.

I am currently working in high performance/research computing at Wayne State University and am rehabilitating homes in my old neighborhood, Jefferson Chalmers. In what spare time I have I dabble in art, gardening, cooking, and hackery things at OmniCorpDetroit. I am a lover of travel, music, biking, dancing, books, and I try my best to stay informed about current events.

We are laid back, flexible and tidy, and we like to host people that are the same. Let us know what brings you to town, we enjoy hearing why people come to visit Detroit.

Welcome!
