What inspired you to begin investigating your topic or inspired you to make your project?:
I love places. And I believe that everyone deserves to live in a healthy place that is loved. I've spent my entire 20+ year career working with communities all over the country to help make this possible - across geographic, income, racial, ethnic and every other kind of line that is out there. I launched my business, Recast City, when I realized that maker businesses and small-scale manufacturing are key to the success of places. I want every maker and business owner to understand how essential they are to their community, and I want to help every local government understand how essential your businesses are to economic stability and places people love.
