WHY I DO WHAT I DO

I am fascinated by cities and great places. Great community plans provide inspiration, but great plans also require continuous action to achieve the vision. I believe in forging long-term relationships with our clients to provide help along the way.

Another important component of our consulting work is always striving to make our products better. I don’t accept the status quo, and I believe in constantly challenging myself and our team to innovate.

My number one goal is to get people moving (physically) and to move people (emotionally). A great place and a great city will do both when land use, building form and transportation systems come together the right way.
