When do we first believe that we are worthwhile?
~Strand of Oaks~
I like people, places, and things.
While I have a tremendous interest in aesthetic and theoretical issues, my work as a city planner requires that I make every design decision in light of its possible benefit or detriment to the community. Will it bring people together or isolate them? Will it create more pedestrians or couch potatoes? Will it reduce or increase our energy use and pollution?
