Daniel joined Houseal Lavigne Associates in 2014 and focuses on graphics and illustrative design work, including development concept visualization and 3-dimensional renderings. He also concentrates on physical mapping projects, including creating and customizing GIS datasets, and using spatial analytic tools to better inform policy recommendations and site design proposals.
Daniel has built his skillset to include strong design abilities because he feels clear graphics help translate policy concepts into actual built form and creates plans that are more easily digested by the public. Daniel brings international perspective to the firm, being fluent in multiple languages, and having worked previously for a planning and urban design consulting firm in both Hong Kong and mainland China.
Daniel received both a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Urban Planning degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and is also LEED accredited. Daniel’s graduate student work on coordinating regional bicycle infrastructure investment in the neighboring cities of Champaign, Urbana, the University of Illinois, and Champaign County, received recognition from the university and has helped guide implementation in those agencies.
