I grew up skateboarding on the urban fabric and civic infrastructure of North Baltimore.
While skating, we would chat with community members who frequented these spots and cheered us on. It was powerful experiencing how a simple bench or ledge could bring a group of unlikely people together for an afternoon. I am inspired in my own work by public places that are radically inclusive and truly communal.
I relocated to San Francisco for its commitment to inclusive environments at a local and global scale. At LMSA, I hope to create affordable housing projects that out-live me and provide beautiful accessible communities for folks from all walks of life.
