I am an Urban Designer, City Planner, and Placemaker dedicated to fostering sustainable and equitable public urban spaces amidst rapid urbanization. With over a decade of experience, I have assisted city governments and local organizations in enhancing their presence in neighborhoods through research and creative design solutions. My expertise includes main street and downtown revitalization, advocacy for infrastructure equity in marginalized communities, planning for sustainable urban growth in immigrant neighborhoods, and spearheading impactful placemaking initiatives for street design and the public realm. I excel in project management, public engagement, and fostering effective government-stakeholder relations. Beyond my 9-5 commitments, I am an active member of Urban Design and Art committees across the US and Canada. I am also a member of AIA, APA, ASLA NY Chapter, and ULI Toronto. On weekends, you can find me at George Brown College in Toronto, studying Fashion and Fashion Sustainability, working on my creative design projects, or exploring new restaurants in the city.
