Education 

Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence, RI, US, Bachelors, Landscape Architecture / Industrial Design

Xavier studied in the Industrial Design department at RISD. While always having an interest in environmental/ sustainable design, Xavier then discovered RISD had a landscape architecture department. Although it was a graduate program, Xavier wrote a thesis and was allowed permission to study the discipline alongside graduate students. The constant influence/ inspiration from students who already worked professionally propelled his techniques and approaches far beyond the average undergraduate student.
