professional work // PLACE

Since 2007, I've worked with an incredibly passionate and dynamic team, creating landmark communities that exemplify the very best in community-driven, inclusive, sustainable design. PLACE is a nonprofit with a mission built right into its acronymic name: Projects Linking Art, Community & Environment. In my time at PLACE, I have worked at every level of project development -- from preliminary feasibility studies (meeting with city leadership, etc.) and market research, to fundraising, architectural design, groundbreaking, construction, and property management. I've written grants, navigated byzantine governmental funding applications, created websites, and have been the main contact point for our artist residents.
