My first published article was about the Coffee Creek conservation development in Indiana.
Let It Flow appeared in Urban Land, June 2000 issue. The year before, my last in graduate studies, a fellowship from the Urban Land Institute gave me an opportunity to write for the magazine.
I was a new staff planner at NIPC learning about the rising practice of suburban conservation design. I became fascinated with the concept of a “culture of water,” as friend and planner Jim Patchett puts it.
ULI kindly published my first feature length piece.
