Landscape Design

With a passion to positively impact our communities through strategic design, I aim to promote exploration and interaction within the spaces around us, while preserving and restoring the natural systems. I apply what I've learned from my academic and professional experience to perform site assessment, develop and refine design concepts, provide technical drawings, and visually communicate ideas to partners, clients and the public. I have a strong interest in working towards strategizing and implementing creative solutions to complex issues in our urban environments including ecosystem restoration, site remediation and placemaking, with a focus on equity and participatory design.




A focus on strategic planning drives my work in designing resilient and multi-functional spaces. Project research into existing planning documents and policies, as well as design standards and guidance provide the groundwork for project concept development and implementation. Additional work includes community outreach, stakeholder engagement, site analysis, master and site planning, and multidisciplinary collaboration to reach larger project planning and programming goals.



Graphic Design

Specializing in layout, presentation decks, digital illustration, infographic development, and production for print and web. Previous work includes graphic production for web landing pages, banners and emails, large format print production, marketing collateral, and packaging design.




Experiences in branding design include re-branding of corporate identity including packaging and design guideline development, development of community and project identity for master planning and environmental design projects for web, marketing and public outreach materials, and logo design.


I'm formally trained in visual arts, design and landscape architecture. I have a strong personal interest in exploring the ways that my design work can create a positive impact on society while exploring and enhancing human interaction with space. My professional goals in landscape architecture are to assist in developing healthy, inclusive, and vibrant communities. My background in digital design and production has led me through a variety of industries, media, and geographic locations, allowing me to develop a diverse set of technical and professional skills. Project coordination and management, trends analysis, marketing strategies, and team dynamics have been staples of my workflow.
