I’m a Western Pennsylvania native, transported to the urban landscape of Baltimore, Maryland, in love with the mountains of Vermont, streets of Rome, and coasts of Oregon. Growing up, I was most recognized behind the lens of a camera or on the back of a horse.
Most of my childhood was spent in the urban parks of Pittsburgh where I learned to identify trees and pronounce their Latin names with my father or out in the country working as a barn rat, riding, and eventually teaching.
Nowadays I work as a landscape architect with a love for both native and urban landscapes, and am an aspiring photographer and writer. I also travel around the country as a volunteer for my professional organization. This site is an outlet for those joys.
