The heart of my work is investigation of means to work across disciplines, roles, and administrative structures to shape the emergence of districts, towns, cities, and other landscapes of settlement to create soul-enlivening and environmentally sound communities.I have worked as an architect, planner, urban designer, public artist and professor, and I see these as aspects of the larger field of Urban Composition (design of the built environment). Most of my courses include students from multiple disciplines.
