Stana Katic: Founder
Stana is a well-known film & TV actress, currently starring in the ABC hit TV series CASTLE. In addition to this, Ms. Katic is a strong advocate for the environment. Having lived in major cities around the world where alternative travel is the norm, Ms. Katic found limited options within Los Angeles to navigate the city without a car. Rather than accept a car-centric fate, Stana dedicated her time to discovering more environmentally sustainable ways to traverse the city. Hoping to share her experiences and discover how alternative travel was accomplished across the world, Stana created the Alternative Travel Project in 2010.
