What do you do at PGAdesign?

I am an associate. Currently, I am working on a number of multifamily housing projects in different phases of design and construction.

Where did you go to school?

I studied landscape architecture at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Before that, I received a BA in English Literature from Oberlin College.

What do you enjoy most about landscape architecture?

I think it’s exciting that landscape architecture can touch on so many things and I almost always feel that there is a new thing to investigate or learn. It is a job where the day-to-day work is varied and the professional backgrounds of collaborators can be diverse.

What do you enjoy doing outside the office?

In my free time, I love walking, cooking (I’m practicing pizza), travelling, and skateboarding.
