I am an urban planner based in Portland, OR. I work to make sustainable transportation an attractive and viable option in neighborhoods and cities. My primary areas of interest are in bicycle and pedestrian planning, transit-oriented development and neighborhood vitality and livability.
I have experience working in economic development and capacity-building aiming at making local communities and businesses stronger; in social and policy research seeking to making government more responsive to community needs; and in transportation planning pushing to make transportation infrastructure projects more efficient and effective.
I recently completed a Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning at Portland State University.
