Who We Are

We are researchers, advisors, planners, creators, and explorers. We are driven by curiosity and a vision of how people and place intersect, and how the future can be envisioned from understanding both the past and present.

Our Process

We begin with an open mind, listening, asking and learning.  We collaborate with the diverse members of your community to find common ground in perspectives, values and goals to develop plans that reflect local culture and the interconnection of its natural spaces and sense of place.
