Hi! I'm Sami! I am a recent graduate of the of the Master of Landscape Architecture Program at UBC where I graduated with the John Wesley Neill Prize, the designation 2023 Olmsted Scholar, and received the Honours grade on my graduate thesis entitled 'Olivewood Ties.' I hold a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Design from the University of Manitoba where I was awarded the Undergraduate Research Award and the James Palmer Lewis Student Award. At FAUM, I was the President of the Student Architectural Society, and at UBC SALA I was the acting VP External of the Landscape Architecture Students Association, and the Student Representative on the BSCLA Board of Directors.


I believe that landscape architecture exists at a beautiful and fascinating intersection of human experience and environmental systems. This intersection provides opportunity for real environmental and societal justice and change. My favourite design challenges are those that question our standard western and colonial approaches to design or tackle social justice issues. When I'm doing research, I gravitate towards topics on environmental justice, healing gardens, or peace-building landscapes.
