WEST PALM BEACH
DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
Biggest role model
My father, Adrian Clemente, made a lot of good stuff happen for his family despite big challenges. Talented, generous, one of a kind.
My Surly Long-Haul Trucker with a steel frame! My human-powered SUV. I haul my kids and groceries, and took a 5-day camping trip on it.
Maui Jim, Peahi Polarized. Amen.
Urban planning book
Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs.
My favorites are from the 80s, but at 49 years old, I’m almost out of tricks, and love my longboard — the Dervish, made by Loaded Skateboards. Bamboo composite deck with lots of flex.
Favorite time of day

Mal Pais, Costa Rica and North Haven, Maine. The common theme is lots of salt water.
