I'm Fern, and I love public transit. In 2022, I moved from my hometown of Oakland to Toronto to study urban planning; a good Californian-Canadian, hablo español et un peu de français. I have been an advocate for better transit in both cities, including some volunteer work with TTCriders.
In my spare time, I love to create transit maps and signage with accessibility in mind. Few things are more satisfying to me than filling a gap in visual rider information. I'd sooner call myself an aspiring graphic designer than an aspiring planner, so we'll see where things take me.
Broadly speaking, I enjoy systems thinking, though I'm only good at it some of the time. I also enjoy seafood, dream pop, linguistics, and the snow.
