“As a kid, I loved making drip castles on the beach — dripping sand to precarious heights, constructing ad-hoc dams and trenches to protect against incoming tides — inevitably losing this battle and watching my creation be consumed by the sea. This was my first foray into landscape architecture and the genesis of my fascination with the complex and beautiful relationship between built and natural systems. Since these early attempts, I have worked to understand this relationship, which has ultimately led me to landscape architecture.
I received a B.A. in Environmental Studies and after graduating I worked at a public wildflower garden, a National Park, and a small landscape and furniture design firm. These experiences allowed me to interact with natural and social systems at vastly different scales and witness firsthand the ecological and social significance of each scale. I continue to explore how natural, built, and social systems can enhance one another, and am still in pursuit of the perfect drip castle.”
