As a researcher of social engagement, placemaking, and their cultural impacts, I'm eager to figure out what makes people tick and determine the ways to meet those needs.
I crave good design, and I love colorful post-its and clean whiteboards. But more importantly, I actively chase down conversations that could result in new opportunities of community engagement.
In forty years, when I look back at the story I've lived out, I hope to have helped make great change happen. Collaboration is essential. And partnerships of all kinds cause great movements to form. These will be my stories.
