Our culturally diverse and multifaceted team is our greatest strength. Our team members grew up in various parts of the world and bring with us unique cultural perspectives on urban spaces, transportation systems, and social equity. Urban mobility and transportation safety is a personal passion for each of us and we bring our diverse experiences into our day-to-day work. We work with state, regional, and local agencies to improve mobility and safety for all users of the transportation system, especially the most vulnerable users.
We have two senior transportation planners with a combined planning and public engagement experience of 40 years – Poorna Bhattacharya, AICP, LEED AP and Rohan Sadhai, AICP. Our Creative Design Director, Stephen Vazquez, has over 16 years of experience on transportation planning projects and helping visualize complex transportation data in a public-friendly format. Our team is supported by a Planner, Shuang Xi, with three years of experience working with FDOT and local government clients.
