As a Boston native, Tim is invigorated by his recent arrival in Washington DC and excited for the opportunity to share his experiences to expand the firm’s presence on the East Coast. Ted Hyman, ZGF’s Managing Partner echoes the firm’s excitement, commenting that “Tim’s strengths and experience, combined with the talents of our East Coast team, will assist our clients in developing thoughtful and sustainable design solutions as we collaborate with them in planning for the future.” Tim is an active member of several professional organizations and has been a frequent speaker on trends and design topics at national conferences, including Greenbuild, SCUP, Railvolution, and Tradeline.
