I joined the Appel Osborne team

to continue my growth as a designer while learning from the most technically proficient LA team serving Upstate New York.

My goals are

to help cities and towns become healthier for both people and for the environment through thoughtful urbanism, green infrastructure, urban habitat, and biophilic design.

Words to live by

"Design is a funny word.  Some people think design means how it looks.  But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works." - Steve Jobs

In addition to Landscape Architecture, I enjoy…

creating art installations, urban history and preservation, urban exploration, photography, cycling, and cooking.
