His research has been cited in publications like the New York Times, Associated Press and the Guardian (UK), he has written editorials in several national newspapers, and he has appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox to talk about his work. During his time at UC Denver, he has delivered lectures at several dozen conferences and published numerous peer-reviewed articles in some of the most respected journals in planning and design. He has worked on grants totaling over a million dollars, and he sits on editorial and executive boards of a number of organizations, including APA Colorado and the Journal of Urban Design.
