Why is design an important part of revitalizing communities?
Design, and including communities in design, helps create buy in within revitalizing communities, resulting in a better, more human-centric place for those who live there.
What has been most surprising, rewarding, or fun about your Collaborative experience?
It was great to work with professionals in disciplines I don't always have a chance to -- my work often comes after the designers are done. Getting involved from the start of the process was fun.
What do you love most about Philadelphia?
I love the diversity of neighborhoods, and how, even though I've lived here most of my life, I still discover new areas, interesting streets, and history that I didn't know about before.
