Working with you to create healthy and resilient communities.

Starting at conception through all design phases to construction, I apply my creativity, technical skills, facilitation experience, and project management abilities to help you realize your goals.

CLASTER specializes in parks, greenways, bikeways, streetscapes, edible and community gardens, campus design, multifamily housing, urban design, and planning. The scale of my projects ranges from regional transportation plans to custom park furnishings.

Public projects have the potential for wide-ranging impact. This includes providing options for biking, walking, or transit use in a community; creating places where people can connect with nature; and helping urban and village centers to stay vital.

CLASTER strives to build a legacy of enduring, beautiful, and life-enhancing environments, meeting each new design challenge with curiosity and compassion. 

 

My clients are collaborators. I regard their input, as well as the input of community stakeholders, and the public, as essential design information. An exploration of the cultural, social, regulatory, ecological, historical, and physical characteristics of the place serves as the jumping off point for inspiration. 

We will likely discover things along the way that shift the focus of the design or suggest new possibilities. There is always more than one right answer, and I am committed to exploring the alternatives with you in a respectful partnership.
