My long tenure at Otak stems from working alongside wonderful, talented colleagues and our projects leaving a lasting, positive impact on our communities.
Don guides projects through the approval process, advocating for both the projects and the clients. This is made easier for him as he says he works with excellent teams and on projects he believes in. Don's experience as both a former chair of the City of Portland's Planning Commission and former member of the City's Development Advisory Committee helped hone his skills in pushing projects along to approval. He has a strong interest in affordable workplace and special needs housing, and open space preservation. You can find him on the golf course when he's ready to relax.
