About me.

I am an urban planner and designer based in Portland Oregon. Currently I am also on the faculty of the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, Portland State University (PSU). At PSU I teach courses on Urban Housing and Development, and Community and the Built Environment.  Prior to relocating to Portland in 2006 I ran a consultancy based in New Jersey. From 2000 through 2001, as Senior Urban Designer, at the NJ Office of State Planning, I helped lead a campaign to raise public awareness about the opportunity to leverage the state’s spending on new urban schools to serve as a catalyst for revitalization, by supporting the creation of schools that serve as community centers. In that capacity I developed and subsequently served as the director for two national school design competitions. I have written widely in academic and professional journals on housing, community development, and topics in the history of urban planning and design. My book Jaqueline Tyrwhitt: A Transnational Life in Urban Planning and Design was published by Ashgate in 2013.  I hold a Ph.D. in Urban Planning from Rutgers University, and a Masters of Architecture from MIT.
