About Me

The trail I have been running down has had many roots, rocks, mud, and other hazards along the way. I started my academic career with an interest in ceramics, and began to have an interest in architecture. It still did not feel like a proper fit and during a tour of Temple University’s campus I was introduced to landscape architecture and it felt like the final puzzle piece in my career search. That decision has sparked a passion in me for mother nature so much greater than it already was. I now have a life-long mission to do my part in preserving her beauty.

P H S F l o w e r Sh ow Final Tide Marker Plan The design chosen for construction involved the re-use of PVC pipes painted blue and cut to heights that reflected the Schuylkill River water levels throughout the day. Twenty-four

pipes were placed in a circle representing the Moon’s orbit around the Earth. Within this circle, three antennae painted red represented water levels during severe storm events.

P u l a ski Park Final Pulaski Park Plan The design flows from the entrance off of the East Coast Greenway with a traditional style monument of General Pulaski. Visitors then walk along the flagstone path with the first fishing pavilion to the right and a rainwater runoff bed to the left. They then enter the main space scattered with abstract sculptures of Pulaski’s Legion. Seat walls are provided to the right to look out over the water. A secondary entrance on the opposite side of the Pulaski Monument serves as an open

space for the local food vendor. Visitors can find a spot to sit and eat on the seat wall along the green wall or proceed into the main space. The main path in the center stretches directly to the waterfront. To the right of that path is an enclosed natural play area for children with a safe rock garden and cavalry sculptures to play on. Beside the play area, along the waterfront is the second fishing pavilion which opens up to the waterfront cove.

T y l e r S c h o o l o f A r t C o urt yard Final Courtyard Design The courtyard design for Temple University Tyler School of Art is meant to be an educational space to portray what landscape architecture can be. The ADA accessible ramp on the western side of

the courtyard emerges from the parking lot and leads visitors to the dining terrace located off of the student lounge. The lawn is shaped by mounded plant beds that give the courtyard a sense of rhythm.
