About 

I am a graduate from the Pennsylvania State University with a degree in landscape architecture. I enjoy public design, urban planning, master planning, high end residential landscape, landscape design, small space design, furniture making, industrial design, and photography.  a more detailed of my interests follows:

  • Focusing specific attention to the differences and connections created by intimate, personal and public spaces
  • Aiming to create emotionally safe atmospheres for the displaced in a public setting or a private sector
  • An interest in social experiments already existing in the site (in reference to public works)
  • Observing movement through a site and site layout
  • Developing environmentally sound spaces with a positive influence, managed over a period of phases
  • Creating artistic landscapes and landforms to be as functional as possible
  • To craft surrealist objects to create familiar pieces in unfamiliar ways
  • The reuse and reclamation of old materials, landscapes and designs to lessen the impact of new designs
