I am a principal planner for the City of Providence, an instructor at the Boston Architectural College, and founding director of Street Ops, a Boston-based tactical urbanism collective. Prior to my current positions, I managed master plans for global design firm, Sasaki. I am a planner with urban design skills, and my professional ambition is to foster equitable and inspiring redevelopment in urban communities.
In all my work, I aim to shape cities to be vital human habitats. Too often cities are shaped around cars, profit, and politics by individuals who know or care little about good urbanism. Cities are for people. And if we are to shape them as such, I believe our visions must be compelling and defensible; and we must employ our best political savvy to realize our dreams.
