As an urban designer, my experience ranges from designing senior community campuses in Oregon to new cities in China. I've served in a variety of project roles including senior urban designer, team manager, and client contact.

Waterfront revitalization is my favorite project type as I view vulnerable and neglected waterfronts as the most compelling places to demonstrate intelligent and sensitive urban design solutions.

I have completed ARE testing, all IDP credits, and am in the process of obtaining my California architecture license.
