I am 65 years old and semi-retired, working as a consultant and writer in the fields of agriculture, local-food systems, planning, development, and transportation. I was a policy advocate and planner for almost 20 years, and, before that, I spent 25 years as a journalist in Ohio, Chicago, Thailand, Minnesota and back in Ohio.

Welcome to Local Nexus

My name is Brian Williams, and I am the chief Dot Connector at Local Nexus, where the mission is to help businesses, organizations, and people find the right information and collaborators to develop local and regional food systems in Ohio. The kind of work I do is outlined in this article I recently wrote for Strong Towns.
