Biography

As a leader in the Community Land Trust world and cooperative resident I have worked in all areas of community and cooperative housing development. Special interests and focus include highlighting the essential nature of resident centered design in architecture and housing, along with the development of networks, partnerships and funding tools to help fuel the growth of California's Community Land Trusts.
In addition to my role as NCLT's executive director I also serve as President of the California CLT Network, and bring an educational background in fine arts and critical theory, a parallel career as a video and media artist and extensive experience as building contractor, project manager and architectural designer.
