Landscape Designer, Project Manager
LEED Green Associate
Problem solving in a range of dynamic conditions is a favorite aspect of my daily work in landscape architecture. At the same time, I hold the thought that, as stated by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hahn, "the world is not a problem to be solved; it is a living being to which we belong." Designing in the public realm and working in ways that can address environmental justice are sources of fulfillment for me. I reside in Oakland, bicycle daily, make music weekly and volunteer at local parks monthly.
