During my experience in designing and planning more livable communities, I've come to terms with what I consider to be the essence of my work: connections. Whether it's an urban hike in a new city, a trail run through a forest, or cycling through neighborhood streets, I always feel the most alive exploring connections. As designers of these connections, we are tasked into awareness and consideration of our environment, culture, health, economy, and aesthetic while creating a variety of solutions for the human experience. We enjoy challenges that ultimately seek to identify a balance between where we live and how we live. In every community we work with, there are opportunities to promote this balance and shore up the positive attributes that are so unique to places.
