What have you been up to since you graduated from Redwood?

I am the sole proprietor of URBANEXUS through which I consult on real estate and community development. Early in my career, I worked for public agencies, including the City of New York and the California State Department of Finance and Governor's Office of Planning and Research. Beginning in 1978, I spent three decades working on master-planned communities in the US and abroad. Prior to relocating to Seattle in 2013, I taught real estate development courses at Cornell University and directed the undergraduate program in urban and regional studies. From 2016 to 2020, I was a half-time lecturer for the Runstad Department at the University of Washington and chaired the department for a year. I am co-authoring a book about large-scale master-planned community development that will be published in June 2022 -- https://www.thebigplanbook.com/. My wife, Rosemarie, and I split our time between Seattle and Phoenix.

School Story:

San Francisco State University (B.A. urban studies in 1970) and
UCLA (M.A. urban planning in 1973.)

Great to hear about you! I'm just a bit north of you--in Seattle.

Mr. Chapman was an amazing teacher. He taught a Russian history class that I took in 1964. I recall that he predicted the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a third of a century in advance of the event. He reasoned that a combination of economic weakness and failure to integrate ethnic minorities would be primary causes.

Many of us continue to think of Marta after nearly half a century since she left us, recalling her intelligence, wit and beauty.
