WITH DEEP EXPERTISE + THE COURAGE TO CHANGE OUR CITY,

I work with developers and investors to breathe new life into old structures and honor both their past + potential. Because what's waiting below the surface is a vibrant community with stories to be told.

 

DIMENSIONAL APPROACH

our approach to development leverages real estate expertise + deeply rooted knowledge of Cincinnati's historic neighborhoods.

HONOR THE STORY

Walls talk and every building has a story. I believe in honoring the history behind each structure.

BREATHE NEW LIFE

I highlight the meaningful connections between people + buildings.

GROW THE COMMUNITY

By honoring the past + creating places with purpose, positive community growth follows.

The result? Purpose-driven multi-functional structures with staying power.

HISTORIC FIREHOUSE #16 REIGNITED

 

designed by famed architect samuel hanford in the 1860s, the historic firehouse closed down in 1977 due to a fire and sat vacant until 2014. now re-imaged as a dual-purpose retail + residential building- the space is home to layers of new life and welcomes new generations of community gathering. details like the fireman’s original lockers and the handprinted names of the firehouse #16 crew still don the walls in honor of its historic roots.

PONY KEG TURNS INTO A MODERN BEAUTY.

 

 

the sign that read "coldest beer in cincinnati" was the only remnant of life left of this decaying old pony keg. the once vacant eyesore in the heart of Oakley is now a fresh + modern salon that houses business for 10 beauty professionals.
