Tom has been with Ground Reconsidered for nearly five years, and at this point, we don’t know how we could go on without the sweet treats he creates and shares with us! Tom is a talented designer who is always asking questions to further his understanding of site and context. He loves to uncover historical narratives hidden in the landscape to create a sense of place that reaches through time. He’s currently exploring the rich history of Bethel Burying Ground Memorial, which will celebrate a historically significant cemetery forgotten for nearly a century. Tom is also passionate about designing spaces that foster positive connections between people and Nature. It’s something that he considers in every project, but for William Penn Charter Lower School it was a driving focus even down to the fine details.
Tom gives credit to the small towns and rolling Piedmont landscape in South Central PA, where he grew up, that influenced his choice to become a landscape architect. He currently resides in Media with his wife and cat and loves spending time outdoors gardening, hiking, and fishing. He also enjoys playing music, cooking, and spending time with his family.
