Kona Farry

Kona is fascinated by the intersection of the built environment, communities, and the individual. His greatest interest is in designing transportation networks that work for everyone, but he spends a lot of time working toward advancing public education out of the industrial era model and into student-centered approaches. He’s a founding member of ASCEND, a Marysville, WA-based community group that’s envisioning this new education paradigm. In his free time, he’s often found sampling a local coffee roaster, researching whatever’s of interest to him today, or taking a bus to somewhere new.
