In a way Now Communities is something I have been preparing for my whole life. My interest in community creation began at an early age when I built whole communities in my backyard out of dirt, Legos and Matchboxes. This early interest led me to the study of architecture and work experiences in all aspects of the design, construction and development industries. Today the issues are a bit more complex but the desire to create strong a sense of place that encourage interaction among its residents remains the primary goal.
