Personal Statement

My fellowship with the Design Trust was a great opportunity to apply my professional expertise directly to broad and current issues within New York City.  It is rare, in professional practice, to get the chance to take such a wide-ranging perspective and approach.  Throughout the course of my fellowship, one of the best experiences was researching the issues and then meeting with experts within the environmental community and city government. Finally, it was very interesting to work closely with the Design Trust staff to produce a document with innovative arguments, substantive research, and graphic impact.
