Over the last year we have had the pleasure of hosting four interns. Getting to train and mentor them is an honor that we are thankful to have the opportunity to do. This spring we have welcomed two young men to our team and are excited to introduce you to them.
Connor Jones is a student studying landscape architecture at Texas Tech University and is graduating in the summer of 2020. He was drawn to study landscape architecture because of his desire to work in the field of environmental preservation and sustainable architecture. When looking at the process of creating a project, the conceptual design phase is Connor’s favorite part. “It’s where I really get to be creative in site design and explore potential ideas and solutions.” In his free time he enjoys hiking and playing disc golf.
“Connor is a smart kid and very enthusiastic about design. He is very creative and has a strong desire to learn all aspects of how our profession works. Always willing to help without hesitation!” -Landy Orama-
Temo Zaragoza is also a student at Texas Tech University studying landscape architecture, graduating in the summer of 2020. He chose to go into the field to create a space that makes people as excited as he gets when visiting a place for the first time. When working on a project, his favorite part is seeing all of the decisions that were made along the way come together to create a space for everyone to enjoy. On his days off, Temo enjoys exploring new places. He loves hopping in his car and finding someplace he hasn’t been before. “I think it is a great way to learn new things and get inspired.”
“Temo has strong design presentation and graphic abilities. He has an impeccable attention to detail on how a design will both function and remain aesthetically pleasing. Great team member and always there to lend a hand.” -Landy Orama-
Connor and Temo’s time with us is coming to an end and we are excited to watch them grow in their last year at school. They have a bright future is ahead of them and it was an honor getting to mentor them this semester.
