It’s been a big year! I turned 30 this year and made my first big career change. After 6 years at Archiverde, I switched to Studio Outside to become a Project Leader.

And with my 1 year anniversary came a nice chocolate cake from my favorite restaurant, Bread Winners, and a raise (which will help with student loan payments — the raise, not the cake).

April is National Landscape Architecture Month. I am proud to be in the profession that for the third year in a row, U.S. News & World Report has named among the best career choices! National Landscape Architecture Month is most likely April because it is the birth month of Me! — but I guess more […]

Long time no write. Not much to report. I’ve just been working and exploring Dallas. Work is going well. I really enjoy what I do. The best part, I have things to do! — which make the days go by fast. Every task in each project is like a puzzle — I love puzzles. My […]
