“Always expect the best to happen.”

With more than 30 years’ experience working with cities and counties throughout California, Paul has managed several agency planning departments, directed general plan and zoning code updates, processed a wide range of urban development projects and prepared resource preservation programs. Paul’s extensive experience combined with education in landscape architecture provides him with a thorough understanding of how people interact with the built environment as well as how land uses combine to create vibrant places.

Paul finds getting to know the people who lead and make up communities and helping them achieve their goals extremely rewarding. As a consultant, he has enjoyed the flexibility to meet and work with many different kinds of public agencies and identifies with the company culture of prioritizing client satisfaction.

In his free time, Paul enjoys spending time in the mountains like his personal hero, John Muir, and dabbling in photography.
