Kaihoahoa Whenua | Landscape Architect
Kaiwhiri | Associate Principal
Originating from New Orleans, I previously worked as a landscape architect in the USA, Australia and now currently in New Zealand. While my job title is Landscape Architect my specialty and interest is in landscape planning and urban design.
I have experience working on projects at differing scales with district and regional councils, iwi, individuals and private developers that cover urban, rural and coastal landscapes. My role includes the preparation of landscape and rural character assessments, coastal natural character assessments and landscape and visual effects assessments. The best part of my job is visiting the diverse, varied and vast range of landscapes across Aotearoa, especially the more remote parts.
When I am not working, you can find me tramping or camping in the mountains (most likely Nelson/Kahurangi National Park), relaxing in the Abel Tasman and/or chasing around my toddler somewhere in the wild.
