Calvin Brown

I grew up in a quiet neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago where I was able to bike everywhere I needed to go at a young age. I loved the independence my bike afforded me, a sentiment I have carried through my life and to a number of cities around the world. I'm thrilled to work with Alta and dedicate my time to making streets safer and more enjoyable for everyone.


Calvin has nearly a decade of experience advocating for safer streets and transit improvements, and lived abroad for a few years before earning his master’s degree in urban planning and policy from Hunter College in New York City, where he focused on GIS and transit and active transportation planning.
