I have created and directed design and urban initiatives in 11 cities worldwide, ranging from short term engagements and advisories to directing the $32 million cultural regeneration project Urbis, The Centre for Urban Culture in Manchester, UK, and leading the Trust Design project for the Netherlands Institute for Design in Amsterdam.
In addition to delivering numerous talks on design and urban topics, I am the author of various publications and articles, including Finding the Truth in Systems: In Praise of Design Hacking. In recognition of my work and research in resourceful design strategies, I was made a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce (RSA) in London.
