meet ramon martinez

I'm honored to say that Ramon has been a fan of NS:LA pretty much from the start, and he's one of the most dedicated + driven people I've had the pleasure of encountering. He helps day laborers fix their bikes for free; he lobbies the city for bike- and walker-friendly urban initiatives; he's a tireless advocate for sustainable streets.

He also helps coordinate the 2010 StreetSummit, an annual gathering of community residents, speakers, and researchers devoted to complete streets on March 20 at LA Trade Tech in downtown LA. I'll be there too, giving my own workshop entitled The Everyday Impact of Urban Design. Everyone's invited! :)

Read more about Ramon at a recent LA Times profile article.
