I’m joining PlaceWorks as Principal of Urban Design. I’ll be responsible for growing the firm’s urban design practice from the Los Angeles office while also playing a key role in marquee projects throughout California. After 15 years of practicing urban design in the public sector, I’m looking forward to applying the knowledge and experience I’ve gained in Santa Monica, Glendale and Pasadena to a wider range of communities in California.
The most significant planning issues in California – climate change, access to open space, social justice, mobility and housing affordability – all engage the urban design of public spaces in our cities, suburbs and towns. With a talented team of planners, designers and landscape architects, at PlaceWorks we have a unique opportunity to meet these challenges and promote positive transformation of our communities.
Founded in 1975, PlaceWorks is one of the West’s preeminent planning, design, and environmental consulting firms. PlaceWorks serves both public- and private-sector clients throughout California in the fields of comprehensive planning, environmental analysis and sciences, urban design, landscape architecture, community outreach, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The firm’s talented, multidisciplinary team thrives on working with communities to tackle complex problems and develop workable solutions. Employing a collaborative and holistic approach, PlaceWorks brings together people from diverse practice areas to offer best-of-all-worlds capability and connectivity.
