About Me

Relevant Courses: Community Charette

As a child, I spent a large amount of time observing my parents work on outside projects. From gardening to landscaping, my parents would spend all their spare time outside. I believe this is where my love of nature comes from.

WORK EXPERIENCE

As I grew older, I started spending more time indoors and focusing on school. From studying, I realized I had a knack for math and science. Eventually, my passion leaned towards technology and computers. Landscape architecture allows me to work with all my interests. I am able to create new experiences and meet a variety of people. I never would have had this chance if not for landscape architecture.
