Community Practice

Over the past 15 years I have worked with numerous non-profit organizations, municipal agencies, and grass roots groups on a wide range of urban issues--including affordable housing, historic preservation, tenant advocacy, public space access, community planning, and labor and immigrant rights.  My contribution usually takes the form of research expertise applied to specific problems of practice and engagement.  Additionally, I use the 'urban tour' as a form of practice.  I frequently give tours for organizations and visiting university groups, with an emphasis on the sensitive inquiry into and engagement with urban spaces and places.
