A novel perspective on design and social engagement.

Our communities are being reshaped by changes in demographics, changes in technology, and changes in how we live and work. How can your organization stay relevant and engage new people?

As a Millennial with years of experience in planning and advocacy, I can provide your organization a unique perspective on how to respond to and engage emerging populations. My presentation covers topics including new trends in transportation and housing, the changing face of suburbia, and using social media in community organizing.
