> What is your proudest professional achievement?

Going against the normal flow that keeps efforts and resources separated and merging Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham into one more effective place-focused revitalization organization, followed by taking responsibility for a third, the City Center District Management Corporation.

> What is your favorite thing to do downtown?

I like to attend concerts and cultural events in historic downtown places, like a movie at the Alabama Theatre or an Evensong at the Cathedral Church of the Advent.
