Hello! I am a licensed landscape architect in the Boston area. I hold a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree from the University of Colorado Denver, and a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree from Cornell University in Design & Environmental Analysis with a concentration in Facility Planning & Management. I approach every design challenge with curiosity and sensitivity, always striving to develop bold concepts that respond to the complexities of a given site. When I am not at work, you can find me getting my hands dirty working on a pay-it-forward project that I started with friends from graduate school, called Garden-in-a-Cup.

In 2011, I was part of the winning design team for the ACSA Haiti Ideas Challenge, an international design competition that asked for design solutions to rebuild the infrastructure, cities, neighborhoods and structures affected by the devastating 2010 earthquake. 'Mosaïque du Sel' was chosen from over 800 participants, best demonstrating "long-term sustainable, culturally appropriate" redevelopment for Haiti.
