I am following protocol regarding introductions for new members. I have been involved in urban design issues for about 20 years. My formal training at Parsons New York was in garden design and interiors. After working in a landscape architecture firm in Manhattan, I started my own company in 1987 and have since worked on a broad range of projects including the design of a large urban community park in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia. Presently, I am working on influencing the re-writing of the zoning code in my adopted city, and have posted a thread on the subject titled Urban Street Corners.
Most of my work today involves design and consultation for restaurants, retail and historic building facades.
I look forward to engaging with this online planning community!
