Lee Pera

Lee is a geographer, educator and community organizer who has lived in 27 different houses in six countries and loves how tiny houses provide both mobility and stability. In addition to building her own tiny house and setting up the nation’s first tiny house community in Washington DC, Lee has worked with communities throughout Latin America and the U.S. on urban infill, land tenure, and sustainable community development. As a geographer, she enjoys making maps and telling stories with data.

Lee works with cities and communities to plan how tiny houses and other mobile structures can be incorporated into affordable housing strategies and creative arts spaces. She holds Master’s degrees in Geography and Public Policy, and she has been featured in numerous media outlets, including NPR, Washington Post, Atlantic Cities, Dwell, Inhabitat, Grist, Architectural Record, CNN, CBS, and ABC.
