My philosophy is...

I feel privileged  to partner with people on solving a community’s problems.   A wise person once said that planners should be compelled to live in the places that they plan.  The people who live and work in a place are the ultimate judges of the planner’s work and we have a responsibility to them in everything we do. 

“However beautiful your strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”  - Winston Churchill
