I’m working to change the way our cities are built, understood, and lived in.
For more than ten years I’ve taken on work that intersects with real estate development, historic preservation, construction, architecture, and urban planning. These opportunities have allowed me to manage complex projects, engage with residents, and organize teams.
I've had the privilege of relocating multiple historic buildings. These have ranged from one-room commercial structures (hello, Taco Bell Numero Uno!) to multi-story residences. However, I've done more than manage projects. Often, I have also prepared cultural resource reports and environmental assessments in order to obtain necessary permits and land entitlements.
I often work with government agencies, real estate developers, architects, engineers, historic preservationists, urban planners, transportation professionals, contractors, and community members. These experiences have taught me that we all can see eye-to-eye, and our work is more successful when we do.
In addition to my work as a consultant, I am full time staff with the City of Beaverton, Oregon, where I manage multiple real estate development incentive programs. I also volunteer with Ticco, an online network for people who shape cities!
I'm always happy to discuss a potential project, connect with a fellow professional, or lend insight to someone interested in pursuing a similar career path.
