Johnasies is graduate student at San Jose State University’s Master's of Urban Planning Program  and currently works as Program Consultant at the Richmond Main Street Initiative and as an Operations Manager at Lotus Bloom Child and Family Resource Center. He is earning a specialization in Land Use Planning and Urban Design. Johnasies is  drawn to planning because he views it as an opportunity to address spatial disparities between communities and create more equitable and sustainable places we can call home.  Prior to starting the MUP program, he worked on community economic development programs, coordinated revitalization activities in distressed neighborhoods, managed an AmeriCorps program, and organized many communities around the country around environmental and social issues.
