Sean Willis is a research technologist with the Urban Design Studio. He has gained extensive experience with GIS and Louisville's tree canopy while working for TreesLouisville and the Division of Urban Forestry. He is currently in a graduate program for business analytics at the University of Louisville.
Sean grew up in Hikes Point and developed a passion for urban planning due to his aversion to cars, and the challenges that brought living in Louisville. Traveling to cities such as Washington D.C. and Chicago fueled the flames of this passion, after seeing the differences in urban design. A love for urban planning and a strong interest in technology led him to the GIS field. In his free time, he likes to work on computers, play video games, and spoil his cats.
