Our People Make the Difference


Colin Amos

My passion for human scaled spaces and active transportation was fostered while living in Copenhagen and experiencing first-hand how transformative human centered infrastructure can be. Working with Alta allows me to work to enact that same vision in my home city and create more equitable, sustainable and healthier communities.
