I am a global person, representing the International Region.  My career has taken me around the globe, from California to the Midwest, to Baltimore and Washington, London, Hong Kong and now Shanghai.  I have worked in small firms, midsize firms and spent my career with RTKL building the international Planning and Urban Design practice as well as many of the global offices as well.  I was the founding president of AiA Shanghai chapter and am the Legal Representative of the AIA Shanghai WOFE in China.  I am currently a consultant on urban design and development, leadership and working with global practices.
