Belle Isle Bike Ride, Detroit, Michigan

David Mieksztyn earned a master of urban planning degree at Wayne State University , concentrating his degree on housing and community development issues.  He grew up in the Detroit suburb of Clinton Township.  David worked as a Data Analyst/Parcel Prospector for LOVELAND Technologies, as a GIS/Data Analyst at the Detroit Land Bank Authority, and a GIS Analyst for Data Driven Detroit, a Michigan Nonprofit Association affiliate.

While at Wayne State University, David worked on a group capstone project for RecoverPark, analyzing a portion of the near east side of Detroit for the purposes of  rehabilitating both the land for agriculture and the community residing there.  His major research paper measured the impact the Macomb Orchard Trail has on the prices of neighboring residential properties.

In his time at Data Driven Detroit, David worked on projects ranging from foundations investing in targeted neighborhoods to state-wide demographic analysis.  David’s passions within urban planning involve elements of urban design and community development.  He hopes to dive into issues revealing how important community involvement in planning is.  He also enjoys an aesthetically pleasing map and the revealing nature of spatialized data.

David plays the guitar, loves to spend time with his friends, and can grow a mountain man sized beard.
