Areas of Expertise

Professional Experiences

I have an extensive background in all sectors of planning, public, private, military, non-profit and owner of a small planning firm. I have served as a Planning Commissioner in the largest land mass city in the United States for three years overseeing issues that range from compatibility, consistency, historic, zoning regulations, Comprehensive Plan Goals, Objectives and Policies to brownfields, schools, Community Redevelopment Areas, Developments of Regional Impacts and waterways. In addition, I have served clients from small scale land use and zoning to large scale mixed use and industrial projects. All of which have to be greatly researched and presented in depth as to consistency, compatibility, mitigation if necessary, and complex coordination with agencies, administrations and communities to be successful.
