Noldy discovered his interests in planning and community development during his undergraduate studies at the University of Florida. There, he obtained a degree in Sustainability and the Built Environment and has worked on projects focused on sustainable development. With his minor in Urban Planning, Noldy combined his interests through exploring the minority perceptions of urban design and sustainability to incorporate local and international sustainable development goals and LEED principles into local schools and communities facing the impacts of historical and racial disinvestment. He employed skills such as impact evaluation and storytelling for community engagement.
Noldy is currently in the process of obtaining his master’s degree in City and Regional Planning at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His specialization in Housing/Community Development and the Environment has given him an avenue to participate in GIS data storytelling, analysis, urban design, and preservation projects which soon led him to seek an intern role with APD-U.
