Hey, I'm Stephen. I'm a web developer based in downtown Los Angeles, CA. Here's a photo I took from my roof.

I'm an urban development nerd. I think cities have tremendous power to make people happy if we design them properly. My favorite projects are the ones that help to do just that.

I built a site called CityGrows to strengthen the connection between neighborhoods and the people that live in them.

I'm also building an open-source mapping tool for CicLAvia.

I'm also making a movie about Los Angeles

I work for NationBuilder because I believe that anybody who cares can create a movement.
