Favorite Project & Why

VIA’s work on the Southeast False Creak Master Plan in Vancouver BC, and Seattle’s South Lake Union Mobility Study and Urban Design plan are inspirational. They are about creating communities where you want to live because it is easy to live, work and play.

Favorite Thing About Your Job

I get to activate ideas to make cities better places to live and make our world more sustainable. It doesn't get any better than that.

Favorite Thing to Do

Look at the snow covered Olympics and Puget Sound on a sunny day.
