Dan Piatkowski is an American academic and urban planner based in Oslo, Norway where he is on the faculty at OsloMet - Oslo Metropolitan University. Before moving to Norway, Dan has worked in some area of urban planning (either academic or professional) in Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nebraska, and Georgia.

These days he spends more time writing about bicycles than riding them.
