Why is design an important part of revitalizing communities?
Design not only creates a sense of space but evokes a mood and can change how people feel.

What has been most surprising, rewarding, or fun about working on a project with the Collaborative?
The Collaborative reinforces how many good and wonderful people there are in Philadelphia who want to help their neighbors who they've never met.

What do you love most about Philly?
The diversity of people, food, thought and neighborhoods that create a wonderful vibrant city.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
I'm most proud of my two young adult children, who want to change the world.
