Professional Biography

My career has focused on planning, designing, and influencing memorable, sustainable and resilient places across the United States and globally. As a Practice Leader at multi-national design firms (HKS, Gensler, Stantec), I have led projects to improve the physical, natural, and cultural framework of a rapidly- urbanizing planet – from urban interventions (including numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites) to large scale projects over 1,000 square miles. These projects span over 31 countries on 6 continents, and across 41 states in the US and have been recognized by local, state, national and international organizations for their valuable contributions to the natural and built environments.
