Over the past 25 years my professional life has been a blend of practice and academia. I have worked with design firms in Boston, Seattle, Denver, and San Francisco, and have taught in a variety of disciplinary programs across the country. My professional practice includes: landscape architecture, urban planning, cultural planning, public art, and cultural policy. Research interests: cultural planning, landscape studies, public art, vernacular creativities, and visual representation. Teaching: construction classes, environmental studies, geography core courses (Introduction to Human Geographies, World Regional Geography) research methods, studios (introductory and advanced; landscape architecture and architecture), theory, topical seminars (e.g., cartography for planners and designers, global cities, public art, reading and writing the land), visual thinking + representation.
Currently I am Faculty in Research and Practice, teaching classes in research methods, developing stronger ties between the academy and practice, and working to place students in challenging and productive practice experiences.
