Melissa is currently a practicing Urban Designer. In past lives she has been: an architect, a furniture designer/maker, a fabrication shop draftsman, and a fellow at two non-profit design organizations. Melissa has proven to be rather nomadic; Knoxville, Nashville, Chattanooga, Detroit, Brooklyn, and Boston have all been ‘home’ at some point.

Melissa is interested in American urbanism, in urban scale representation, in meta-narratives, and in design pedagogy. She teaches things, she learns things, usually all at the same time. She is a firm believer in brunch, the oxford comma, and collages.
