Originally from Connecticut, Tori migrated out west, first to Wyoming, then Oregon and northern California and finally to San Diego. She is interested in projects at the intersection of art and ecology and uses research-through-design methods to explore new possibilities in landscape architecture. She found a passion for ‘making’ in graduate school at the University of Oregon. Making sculptures and drawings to explore places and experiences. Outside of the office, Tori enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, skiing and is learning how to play golf.
