CUYAHOGA COUNTY ROAD INVENTORY MAP SPRING 2018 I designed, created, and led the Cuyahoga county route inventory map and document. I started by categorizing the routes by ok, add, or not. “ok” routes are established, “add” needs to be reviewed, and “not” are routes that need to be removed. then, I designed a document that categorized the routes by municipality and status. I also led discussion with Cuyahoga county’s department of public works, and department of information technology. 10

CUYAHOGA COUNTY’S DEPARTMENT OF SUSTAINABILITY CLIMATE CHANGE VULNERABILITY MAP SUMMER 2018 Cuyahoga county’s department of sustainability wanted to model a vulnerability map based off Cleveland neighborhood progress’ vulnerability map. i created the maps in ArcMap and wanted to use a bivariate legend to show the most vulnerable places (brown), therefore the colors were picked because their based color(off-white) is the same. as you can see to the right the different social and physical categories combined showing the vulnerability of certain areas due to climate change.

HOUSING STOCK ASSESMENT EAST CLEVELAND, OH SPRING 2018 The city of East Cleveland’s housing stock has shockingly decreased since the stock market crash in 2008. Myself and my fellow colleagues at cultivators wanted to know what is the climate of the housing stock in east Cleveland, Ohio. I pulled data from the Cuyahoga county open data source, then I went to the Cuyahoga county land bank site and manually joined the addresses to the county’s address data to show homes that are listed with the land bank (spring 2018) (indicated in blue), and I also added properties that are foreclosed on only in 2017 (indicated as red) and building footprints in 2016 (indicated as green). As a result, there are many properties indicated in blue, meaning that if there are structures on these properties they will be demolished.

SLAVIC VILLAGE “KNOWLEDGE GARDEN” PROPOSAL RENDERING SUMMER 2018 Slavic village is a neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio. the neighborhood’s population has decreased resulting a rise in vacant structures and lots scattered throughout the neighborhood. this site is a garden owned by a master gardener who lives in the neighborhood. the lot has been taken over by Ubuntu Cultivators (a nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing vacant properties to engage and teach individuals from the community about gardening and nature. to the right is a rendering of the lot being combined with three abutting lots to create an area for the community to learn, grow, and create. the proposal of the knowledge garden was given to Slavic village development corporation for further review. 16


THIS RENDERING IS FOR A PROPOSAL FOR A KNOWLEDGE GARDEN IN THE SLAVIC VILLAGE NEIGHBORHOOD OF CLEVELAND, OHIO.

FINDING EQUILIBRIUM IN CUYAHOGA COUNTY’S IMPERVIOUS AND PERVIOUS SURFACES USING THE GOLDEN RATIO The concepts of finding equilibrium in impervious and pervious surfaces using the golden ratio is derived from an environmental aspect. planning and development are going to be a continuous market; therefore, planners should look towards implementing more sustainable practices to their work. this means that development should have an economic and environmental foundation, considering preserving and creating areas of greenspace. we can do this by using the golden ratio law. the law has been used in ancient architecture, design, painting, music, and even nature. the golden ratio law is said to be the foundation of happiness and prosperity. planning should be centered around prosperity and the well-being of the people. 18

The Golden Ratio has been a tool to guide the design world to create works that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Design is an important part to the field of planning especially when clients request a more aesthetically pleasing environment. The planning realm has shifted to acquire a theory known as Sustainable Urbanism. Sustainable Urbanism can be defined as the transformation of a current city’s form to a walkable, active, and healthier environment. Sustainable practices are becoming incorporated to design guidelines as a part of relieving stress of the natural environment and ourselves. As we have developed, our need for the natural environment has progressed. The term Biophilia, is known as the intent to seek out natural environments due to its aesthetics. Since, Planning is shifting towards a design oriented field it is key to understand how to apply The Golden Ratio and how it can create spaces that are aesthetically pleasing to residents. In many of our cities we find that development has taken over and in some cases the areas are not pleasing to the eye. By applying the Golden Ratio to Planning we can assess an area by comparing greenspace to developed space. Ideal space (according to the golden ratio) would be 38% Greenspace and 62% Developed space. Developed space includes parking lots, retail, commercial, residential, and roads. By balancing greenspace in a city, it will change the quality of life in the city and the city’s characteristics overall.

LEGEND: GREENSPACE DEVELOPED SPACE

THE ABOVE BOARD IS A THEORY AND RESEARCH PIECE I AM LOOKING TO STUDY MORE IN DEPTH. THE CONCEPT IS TO PUSH MORE GREENSPACE IN DEVELOPED AREAS NOT ONLY FOR AESTHETICS BUT FOR THE HEALTH AND ECONOMIC VALUE FOR THESE MUNICIPALITIES.

CUYAHOGA COUNTY CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION PLAN: GREENHOUSE GAS DIAGRAM SUMMER 2018 Cuyahoga County’s Department of Sustainability wanted an interactive graphic to show how greenhouse gases impact the environment and cause global warming. I designed the base image for the interactive graphic. Below (before image) was taken by local Cleveland photographer Erik Drost and the above image (after) is my photo edit of Erik’s downtown photograph showing the effects of greenhouse gases and global warming. 20

PHOTOGRAPHY 2010-2018

Photography is a hobby and a passion of mine since I was in middle school. Landscape, portraits, and macro photography are my strong suits. I have entered numerous photo competitions since 2010. I have received: scholastic gold key award, honorable mention in Nikons high school and college photography contest, and finalist recognitions in various local competitions. My passion is not drive by awards and recognitions, it is a part of who I am and how I express myself.
