I had the privilege to work on the Hillsborough Street Streetscape project over the course of my whole career, while a student at State, a researcher at ITRE, a consultant, and a planner for the City of Raleigh. No project has been as dear to my heart as it was because it truly changed the front door to my alma mater, by both revitalizing a dying urban corridor and significantly increasing safety for all its users.If you could witness any past, present, or future event, what would it be?
I love great music, so it would be a concert I missed at my favorite venue (before I knew it was my favorite venue) but have listened to 100s of times: Mutual Admiration Society concert and post-concert jam session in the parking lot at Lime Kiln Theatre, Lexington VA, August 17, 2004.Do you have any pets?
At any time, I have somewhere around 30,000 to 60,000 pets – 1 dog, 3 koi, a dozen aquarium fish, and a hive of honey bees.What is your favorite quote?
“This above all: to thine own self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day; Thou canst not then be false to any man." -Polonius to Laertes - Act I, Scene III; Hamlet, William Shakespeare
