Senior Thesis Statement:  American cities are dominated by the car, and we need viable alternatives to enhance community in America.

Brief Description of Senior Thesis:  The highway has killed public transportation. With few exceptions, American cities lack the train, bicycle, and walking infrastructure that the rest of the world has. Our cities and towns have suffered greatly, leaving America unwalkable and difficult to navigate. America would benefit greatly from better transit, ranging from high speed rail to wide bicycle lanes.

Post Graduation Plans:  To study political science at the University of Alabama before attending law school
