I am a nonprofit professional, a trained architect and urban researcher with a specialization in civic engagement. Since 2012, I have worked on transportation advocacy, placemaking, technical assistance and education projects spread across 12 American States and 5 countries. I strongly believe that the built environment has a sustained impact on the personal and social lives of people that inhabit them. In that vein, I intend to dedicate my career to advancing design and planning practices that cultivate physical, social, and financial wellbeing for all citizens, especially the more vulnerable populations.
