I am inspired by the writings and the life experience of William Morris, Fredrick Law Olmsted and other architects and urban designers of the late 19th century. Borrowing the words of early 20th-century influencer Edward Bok, I strive to make the world a bit better or more beautiful because I have lived in it. To me, this means planning cities, neighborhoods and public spaces for the safety and enjoyment of people, and the protection of our natural resources.
