My passion is the public realm and how our streets and public spaces transform our daily experiences. This focus started for me as a child growing up in Hinsdale, IL. I walked to school for 12 years of my life and my friends and I would co-ride our bikes to the corner shop for candy. Many years later, my desire to be able to walk and bike from home to work and everywhere in between has remained the same. I’ve been in San Diego for 10+ years and have focused on creating great places that bring people together. I’m passionate about advocating for a community’s vision through design and planning processes. Through all of this, I’ve spent many years honing project management and professional capacity building with design, technical program, and public outreach skills.
