Delivering transformational projects that move Philadelphia forward

Welcome! I use my experience as an architect and urban designer, combined with my strengths as a strategic facilitator and connector, to create inclusive and aspirational community revitalization projects for my clients. 

For over twenty years, I have led the realization of institutional and cultural buildings, citywide and campus master plans, and engagement processes for community and high-level stakeholders in and around the Philadelphia region. I’ve gained this experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, so I have sat on both sides of the charrette table and know what it takes to get the job done. I excel at leading multidisciplinary teams and community organizations through complex projects and big plans that require a strategic process of research, accountability, and engagement. Ultimately I’m committed to projects that make for a more equitable Philadelphia for everyone, today and into the future.

Got big plans? Let's talk!
