NOTHING BIG HAPPENS IN A CITY WITHOUT ALIGNING POLICY, FINANCE AND DESIGN.
I served as the Chief Urban Designer for New York City at the Department of City Planning during the Bloomberg era. I now bring those master planning, policy and architecture skills to a select group of clients including governments, multi-national corporations, developers and communities. What unites these diverse clients is a commitment to achievable reality: to designing innovative projects from buildings to neighborhoods that can work politically, financially and make a beautiful addition to the life of the city.
I design with experience. I have had a long career with many different roles shaping the policies, finances and design of works large and small.
