I have been so fortunate to build a career around my passion for revitalization of cities and active transportation, the most basic building block to healthy communities. Over the years I have lived and worked in Colorado, Oregon, and on the east coast. I enjoy learning about new places, love exploring and getting around by bike, and helping empower people to change the design of their communities.
