Adam Cummins

Open Space Planner

I have a profound interest in the importance of open space and the role of well-designed places in creating a vibrant, diverse and resilient society. With a skill set that exists at the intersection of sport and recreation, urban design and business development, I understand the challenges in this space and aim to provide solutions in a way that is sincere and valuable for all parties. My colleagues would describe me as patient, resourceful and able to stay calm and focused in a high pressure, rapidly evolving environment. Currently, I’m seeking opportunities that will allow me to design, develop or influence urban environments with a focus on community-led initiatives that achieve positive social outcomes.
