3. Who am I

I am an engineer-economist and planner by training, an urbanist and philosopher of the built environment by vocation.  I have taught, written, and worked on large scale urban and regional developments, transportation policy and planning, and civil infrastructure systems analysis, throughout the United States and abroad.   I undertake consulting assignments, formerly through the MATRIX group, a firm I founded in 1985, and now as an independent contractor.   I also work with the Cooperative Research Programs of the Transportation Research Board, U. S. National Academy of Sciences.  I previously served five years as Director of the Academy’s Building Research Board and formerly held senior management positions with PRC Engineering, Inc.; PRC Nigeria, Ltd.; and Alan M. Voorhees & Associates, Inc.   I received my university education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
