As a child, Brandon had a strong connection with the natural world, and could often be found outside studying frogs and insects in the woods around his parents’ New Hampshire home. It was no surprise that while considering a future career as an architect, it was a visit to a park in Boston that inspired him to become a landscape architect instead. After graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelors Degree in Landscape Architecture, Brandon spent over 11 years in Boston, working almost exclusively on parks and public open space projects. Over the course of his career he has seen the positive impact that parks have on communities and individuals, and he is driven by the opportunity to create places that enrich people’s lives. As Capital Projects Manager, Brandon brings his passion and expertise to help create transformative public open spaces for the communities and neighborhoods throughout Pittsburgh. Outside the office, Brandon can often be found hiking, biking, and running in Frick Park or exploring the Western Pennsylvania wilderness with his wife and son.
