I am multidisciplinary artist and formally trained landscape architect. Using art and design, I promote a shared environmental awareness and heightened cultural value of ecology, highlighting pressing issues and everyday phenomena.
Informed by environmental research and community outreach, my work manifests in a variety of forms, ranging from site-speciﬁc landscape installations in the woods to data-driven cartography in the gallery.
I studied landscape architecture at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design and worked with Sasaki Associates and Ground, Inc. before focusing my creative practice at the intersection of landscape, art, and cultural event.
When not leading my one-man campaign for sustainable cutis anserine americana, I can be found quietly playing in the dirt in and around my Cambridge, Massachusetts home.
Inquiries, collaborations and opportunities welcome.

Select Professional Experience
Volunteer EP Event Producer, Boston Society of Landscape Architects, July 2012 to August 2015
As the Emerging Professionals (EP) Event Producer, I collaborate with the EP Chair, Nina Chase, to develop and execute events-based strategy to foster professional growth and community development for members of the Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA) Emerging Professional Group. In essence, I design event-based experiences in order to strengthen our professional design community. I loath name-tags, bulleted PowerPoint slides and clammy handshakes; my self-directed charge is to foreground the social component of professional networking in a fresh engaging fashion that is in line with the attitudes of young designers. In the course of the last year, by means of engaging program and a whole lot of outreach, the BSLA EP group now boasts 200+ members.
