The Experience Durham Needs

I am a professional urban planner who specializes in helping cities across the South manage their growth in a sustainable and equitable manner.

As a member of Durham's Planning Commission since 2018, I have fought for progressive initiatives like walkability improvements, inclusionary planning, and transit-oriented development.

I am a Durham native and for the past ten years, I have been actively engaged in regional politics and local community organizing.

Rapid growth requires sustainable and equitable planning solutions. I have helped multiple growing cities implement those solutions successfully, and I am prepared to do the same in Durham if I am elected to the Board of Commissioners.
